National Park addressed on nuclear waste site

A passionate speech has been made from Councillor Woodburn about the National Park.

"I will take this time to clarify that if we take the decision to go forward it will include all of Copeland, including the National Park.

"We will look at Stage 4 potentially excluding areas but there has to be good reason to take an area out."

– Councillor Elaine Woodburn
