Cheshire Brine Search

This is a search of the Cheshire Brine Compensation Board's records to ascertain whether the property has been adversely affected by brine mining.

Why Request a Cheshire Brine Search?

This search should be done if the property is in Cheshire. Similar to coal mining, a property in a brine mining area may be subject to mining subsidence.

Ordering a Cheshire Brine Search

The Cheshire Brine Compensation Board has now merged with the Coal Authority and so a coal mining search result includes information on brine mining. The coal mining search costs £27 plus VAT and is obtained via the Coal Authority website

The Search Result

Details of any brine mining activity can be found at the end of the coal mining section of the search. If there is none it will say so.
