What we do
Policy, strategy and practice across all areas of nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management must meet the needs of local authorities and communities. We work to promote this, both within the UK and internationally.
Meeting & Events
We are a forum for councils to engage with Government and the nuclear industry, hosting regular events for both elected members and officers.
Welcome to Nuleaf
Nuleaf is the voice of local government on nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management. We work with Government, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), Radioactive Waste Management Ltd (RWM), regulators and the wider industry and promote the best economic, social and environmental outcomes for nuclear communities.
Over 100 local authorities and National Park authorities across England and Wales are members. We are a representative body of the Local Government Association.
