Our aim is to encourage the nuclear and energy industry in the area as part of our commitment to economic growth and sustainability in Copeland. We are currently producing a suite of policies that will be supportive of Britain’s Energy Coast aspirations of West Cumbria becoming the energy coast for the UK.
The proposed policies will address:
- New nuclear power
- Nuclear Waste
- National Nuclear Repository Facility
- Social and Economic sustainability
- Carbon reduction
- Grid Connection
Once the policies are in initial draft state they will be subject to internal and external consultation with local and national stakeholders. Following the outcome of the consultation process, they will then be published.
