Property developer volunteers Allerdale, Cumbria for UK’s nuclear waste

Cumbria Trust 15th Jan 2021, Eight years after the last search process was halted, Allerdale finds itself back in the firing line to be the burial site for the UK’s nuclear waste. However this time it isn’t Allerdale which has volunteered itself, but a property developer based in Dalston near Carlisle.
He has also volunteered Copeland. The new rules of engagement rather bizarrely allow
anyone to volunteer anywhere, even an individual who doesn’t live in the area, or a company can volunteer it.
During the government consultation which created these rules, Cumbria Trust highlighted the risk of making it exceptionally easy to volunteer an area, even if it is against the wishes
of the local population.
The first test of public support could be up to twenty years later, leaving the threat hanging over the community for that time. Of course, the ease with which the process can be started isn’t
mirrored by the ease of withdrawing. There the government have chosen a highly prescriptive system.
