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.
MOD has announce the shortlist of sites which are being considered to store the Reactor Pressure Vessels from the decommissioned nuclear submarines. These are classified as Intermediate Level Waste. You can find information about the sites and a list of stakeholder events on the MOD website.
