'No evidence that the area is unsuitable' says councillor

Councillor Elaine Woodburn has responded to questions regarding the suitability of geology in west Cumbria:

"It's a fair nervousness that everybody has but there is no evidence to say that the area is unsuitable but there is also no evidence that it is suitable.

"We will only know if we go forward. And it is looked at indepth.

"Information at this stage is just not available."

– Councillor Elaine Woodburn
