Margam Opencast Mine Community Led Health Impact Assessment Case Study

Health Impact Assessment

The comprehensive health impact assessment examined the impact of the proposed extension to the Margam Opencast mine, located in South Wales. Residents of the villages bordering the existing opencast operations, which have been operation for many years, believe that the existing opencast working in the area had already had a negative impact on their health, and that the proposed extension would exacerbate this further. In addition residents were concerned about the cumulative effects of exposure to pollutants from other industries within the locality including a local steelworks.
