The government has published the White Paper setting out the revised process for siting a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for the long term management of higher activity radioactive wastes. We would encourage every local authority to read the paper and consider their opportunity to engage in this process. NuLeAF has published a Briefing Paper which outlines the key issues for local government in the White Paper. You can find the Briefing Paper in our Document Library. NuLeAF would be happy to provide impartial advice and information, formally or informally. Please do not hesitate to contact us. We have also published a draft Briefing Paper which sets out the core issues in the White Paper and NuLeAF's initial views.
You can find the presentations given by the Office for Nuclear Regulation and Environment Agency to the Radioactive Waste Planning Group on coastal erosion and flooding and nuclear licensed sites on 3 September in the document library.
