Waste site would bring "long lasting economic benefits" says Baroness Verma

“Geological disposal is the right approach for the long-term, safe and secure management of the UK’s higher activity radioactive waste.

“Hosting a site would bring lasting economic benefits with jobs, opportunities for businesses, and a generous benefits package to support the community.

“We want to make sure those benefits are well understood and supported by all those in the area surrounding any host community.”
