Nuclear waste

Our area is a crucial one for nuclear waste disposal, since nobody has found a safe way to store these extremely toxic materials.  In LDCND we have worked with colleagues in Cumbria (for example Radiation Free Lakeland) to campaign against geological storage plans, and have had the satisfaction of the County Council deciding not to pursue the idea of accepting government plans for deep geological storage in Cumbria.  But meanwhile the toxic waste is still there, so we are monitoring the situation carefully all the time.
