“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.”
The Government has announced that it wants to change the planning rules surrounding whether an underground nuclear nuclear waste could be built in Cumbria.
