CIRIA's 60th anniversary heritage guidance webinar series
Throughout the year we will revisit a number of our seminal publications.
Abandoned mine workings manual (2019)
Beach management manual (second edition) (2010)
The Rock manual (2007)
The International Levee handbook (2013)

Background
The first installment of the webinar series will feature the Abandoned mine workings manual (C758D). Industry experts will give an overview of the manual’s scope and key features, and delve deeper into four key chapters: site investigation, treatment of mine workings and mine entries, and surface stability.

Since the publication of Construction over abandoned mine workings (SP32) in 1984, the numerous issues associated with abandoned mines are progressively being better understood, with significant advances in knowledge and expertise. The deep coal mining industry has been run down, and this has coincided with increased urbanisation and regeneration of land in areas of former mine workings.

Supported by industry, principally The Coal Authority, CIRIA embarked on a project to update SP32. The Abandoned mine workings manual (C758D) retains much of the information from SP32, but with substantial updates in dealing with the effects of the mining legacy. It also provides further guidance on the planning regime, environmental considerations, legislative framework, and health and safety issues.

The manual is divided into three parts:
Historical background and context
Residual impacts of past mining
Land management and construction in mining areas

The manual offers a risk-based, non-prescriptive approach to the mitigation and remediation of mining legacy issues covering the geographical area of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is aimed at regulators, planning authorities, developers, asset owners and operators, consultants and contractors.
