The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Anniversary of the momentous Cumbria County Council “no to a GDF” decisio

Council halted the search for a site to bury the nation’s nuclear waste
in Cumbria. In a impassioned speech, Council Leader, and now Cumbria Trust
Director, Eddie Martin refused to let the Managing Radioactive Waste (MRWS)
search process continue, recognising the overwhelming level of local
opposition and Cumbria’s unsuitable geology, amongst a number of other
reasons.

Copeland borough council’s strategic nuclear and energy board
have already started to hold meetings behind closed doors to discuss
joining the new process. As well as sidelining the county council, the new
process also ignores public opinion. The first and only opportunity the
public will have to stop the undemocratic process is after 20 years, during
which time the area will be subjected to intrusive investigations and
significant blight.
