There is a proposal to dig up coking coal for steel production in the UK.
Demand for coking coal is falling and the mine would undermine climate targets.
Two years had passed since the local county council approved the West Cumbria Mining project.
After the government’s climate change adviser said it would increase carbon emissions, the project’s approval was halted.
The original decision was reviewed and a report was sent to the secretary of state of communities.
Some Conservative Party MPs have spoken out against the plans, exposing the divisions within the party.
The mine has divided opinion in Cumbria, with some in favor of the jobs it would bring, but others warning of the risks of climate change.
