NuLeAF (the Nuclear Legacy Advisory Forum) is Special Interest Group of the Local Government Association supported by 110 local authorities and 3 national park authorities across England and Wales. Our remit encompasses all aspects of the management of the UK’s nuclear waste legacy, including spent nuclear fuel and waste management from prospective new nuclear generating capacity. Our primary objectives are:
- to provide a mechanism to identify, where possible, a common, local government viewpoint on nuclear legacy management issues;
- to represent that viewpoint, or the range of views of its member authorities, in discussion with national bodies, including Government, the NDA and the regulators;
- to seek to influence policy and strategy for nuclear legacy management in the interests of affected communities; and
- to develop the capacity of its member authorities to engage with nuclear legacy management at a local level.
