Allerdale Borough Council have voted yes to look for a nuclear waste disposal site in west Cumbria.
The voting carried a 5-2 majority.
"It was right for us to undertake our own debate on this issue.
"I personally think that Cumbria County Council have got it wrong. We will enter into a conversation with Government to see if there is any way we can still go forward."
Councillors will decide whether to look for a site to bury nuclear waste. We look at the arguments AGAINST going forward in the process.
As 24 councillors prepare to decide whether west Cumbria should look for a possible site to bury nuclear waste we look at the arguments FOR.
