Welcome to the Coal Authority's Electronic Forms

We are pleased to announce that on 28th September 2021 we launched our new Permit application service.

Your existing portal account is no longer available, and you will need to create a new account. You can access the new Permit portal by visiting Get a permit to deal with coal or coal mines - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and clicking the ‘online application form’ link. Please ensure that any bookmarks are updated.

Please note that the current way that permitting Terms and Conditions are accepted will be changing alongside the launch of the new application form. Terms and Conditions signed by the permit holder/client will need to be submitted as part of a permit application submission. You can download a blank copy of the terms and conditions by visiting Get a permit to deal with coal or coal mines - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and clicking the ‘terms and conditions’ link.
