Cumbria County Council's decision to refuse planning permission for a radioactive waste dump in west Cumbria is the subject of a Public Inquiry this week.
A number of planning consultants and council officers will be presenting evidence at the Inquiry, which will be held over an expected two-week period at County Hall in Kendal.
The application to use the Keekle Head former open cast coal mine as a site to store up to aone million cubic metres of low-level waste was turned down in May 2012.
