Interview with Cllr Marion Fitzgerald, Allerdale Borough Council

Mike Starkie, Mayor of Copeland, shares his views on geological disposal
The work that is under way to assess whether there is a willing host community and suitable place in our locality to accommodate a Geological Disposal Facility is of significant national importance and, quite rightly, is attracting substantial interest and opinion. But what is not up for debate is that the Copeland borough has a significant role to play in this process, regardless of the final location of a GDF in England or Wales.
Local government is always working on two fronts: to deliver effective services today and to yield better future outcomes for their community. In the middle of this unprecedented crisis, the need for action on public health and the economy, while laying the foundations of a future recovery, is more urgent than ever.
