The Verbal:

S106 money has to be used for the purpose intended.

One year in: 

The old farmhouse was been demolished with some delay due to the bats, this site now houses temporary welfare facilities for the work force.  The construction workers accommodation/village is not required. The company is much committed to 80% local workforce.

The power generation plant is under construction with Lockwood Beck shaft to start soon along with work at Teesport. 

The shaft platforms at the mine site are all constructed.

Following directly on from the Presentation by York Potash to Members of the National Park Authority on Monday It became clearly apparent how unprepared certain Members were and are, and, as some Members blatantly exhibited  their lack of basic knowledge on the project, either through sheer bone idleness, indifference, arrogance or just acting plain dumb it took me back to the Presentation at Scarborough Town Hall way back in June 2012.
