The Government has ruled out the prospect of an underground nuclear waste store being created in west Cumbria.
Have your say
Fantastic news, a great weight off peoples shoulders. What was the point of spending more money in stage 4 to find the perfect site, (assuming the experts in the BGS were idiots and got all there previous studies wrong) and then not being able to proceed with the build because the majority of people oppose the very idea.Lets wait and see how many others come forward to accept this, there are some deprived areas down south but even they won't be bribed into having this dumped on them.
I see you all still dont get it,everyone was happy before the vote,, Because you all thought it was a done deal to move to stage 4,,CCC represents the whole of Cumbria,,Thank goodness we have level headed people on the Council who locked at it from more than false promises..Now can we get all the dummys picked up of the road out of Whitehaven,its taken an age to get home,,,,,
How can the Government just "throw away" the results of years of research ( not to mention taxpayer's money ) - Stage 4 must be completed. This will give us most of the answers necessary to make an INFORMED decision. If the answer comes back that a GDF (geological disposal facility) is not advisable in Copeland then thatâs the end of MRWS in this area. Do not forget: a) the technology to SAFELY store nuclear waste underground was developed decades ago, and b) a Stage 4 report "positive" does not remove the right of withdrawal.
