Leek & Weston's first task on setting up in business was to value the South Wales coalfield, including Tower Colliery, for Caledonian Mining Ltd., dring privatisation of the coal industry. Since that time we have been continuously involved in the activities of the coal mining industry in South Wales and have continued to network with South Wales coal mining experts and specialise in the development of Welsh coal. We worked with Miller Argent and their predecessor CLH Ltd. on surface coal mining projects in the Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney areas. We acted as their planning agents and advised on estates matters for the development of 'Ffos-y-fran Land Reclamation Scheme', 'Nant Llesg Surface Mine, Incorporating Land Remediation' and 'Cwmbargoed Disposal Point'.

Leek & Weston Ltd has also acted as Land Agent for a number of private estates in South Wales; involving management of common land, mineral development and renewable energy schemes such as wind and solar farms.

Roger Leek was formerly a Senior Projects Planner with British Coal Opencast and worked in the opencast industry for 23 years. He has continued to provide planning and mineral consultancy services to the private sector for a further 24 years.

David Weston formerly worked for British Coal for over 18 years as Estates Manager in their Estates Department in both the opencast and deep mining sectors. He is a qualified Mining Surveyor and previously worked in various collieries throughout South Wales. Over the last 24 years he continued to provide Estates Management services to major South Wales land owners through Leek & Weston Ltd.
