Welcome to the NuLeAF website

demolitionHere you will find information about NuLeAF policy and activities. NuLeAF seeks to build capacity within local government to engage effectively with nuclear legacy management and works to represent the views of member local authorities to national bodies.

Geological Disposal Facility

As part of the stakeholder engagement process, Radioactive Waste Management are organising a number of workshops to discuss the national geological screening exercise.  RWM met with members of NuLeAF's Radioactive Waste Planning Group on 10 December and you can view the presentation slides here. You can also find the regional summaries produced by the British Geological Survey here. An event for local authorities is being held in London on 12 February. If you would like details and to register contact john.dalton@nda.gov.uk. 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.
