A DEBATE will take place today over plans for west Cumbria to host an underground nuclear dump.
Cumbria County Council’s full council will consult on whether the area should continue to take part in the Government’s search to house the repository.
However, the final decision will not be made until October 11 when the county council along with Allerdale and Copeland councils say yes or no to going forward to the next stage.
If they do agree to take the next step, the Government will conduct more detailed geological surveys, looking for potential sites in the county.
The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority said that the search for a suitable site could take about 15 years.
During this time, local authorities have the right to withdraw while the process is ongoing.
Members are expected to give their opinions on the pros and cons at today’s meeting, in Kendal, as well as discussing questions raised by members of the public.
