Ellington Colliery did not receive any support under the UK Coal Operating Aid Scheme during 2000–02. In 2004, UK Coal plc. was allocated £2.168 million of Coal Investment Aid to support planned investment spend at Ellington to March 2006. One payment of £850,000 has been made from this award. This represented 28.73 per cent. reimbursement of approved investment costs incurred and defrayed during January-September 2004.
