THE SEARCH for a radioactive waste site is taking a step forward…

with residents in England and Northern Ireland invited to a series of public consultation workshops to be held across the country.

Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), the organisation responsible for delivering a geological disposal facility (GDF) for the country’s radioactive waste, will be holding a workshop on   Tuesday 20th October at the Hallmark Hotel Carlisle 18:00 – 20:30

The workshops will run alongside a public consultation seeking views on RWM’s proposed approach to gathering and presenting information on the geology of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

A RWM spokesman said: “A GDF will provide a permanent and safer solution to dispose of the UK’s higher activity radioactive waste while it decays, safely away from people and the environment, deep underground.
