Government says it Could Put Nuclear Waste Site Under National Parks

Government says it could put nuclear waste site under national parks

UnearthedThe British government has refused to rule out placing an underground nuclear waste facility beneath protected areas such as national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

In response to a written question last week, Lord Henley, parliamentary under-secretary for business, energy and industrial strategy, said the government is "not excluding" developing the proposed storage site at protected areas, though it should only be consented in such areas "in exceptional circumstances and where it would be in the public interest to do so."

The government is currently searching for the future home of its geological disposal facility, which it sees as a long-term solution for most radioactive waste produced by nuclear power stations.

Its refusal to rule out national parks, however, recalls previous failed attempts to get consent for the site.

In 2013, Cumbria county council voted to reject the facility amidst local opposition. And in the 1990s an attempt to build an underground lab on the edge of the Lake District to examine the case for such a facility was rejected at a Planning Inquiry.

A spokesperson for the Lake District park authority told Unearthed: "It is our conclusion that because the Lake District is both a National Park and a World Heritage Site, it should be excluded from the search area.

"We also do not believe there is one single local community that can represent the National Park, as per the current definition.

A BEIS spokesperson said: "Existing legislation already provides a high level of protection and ensures development is appropriate and proportionate.

"National parks benefit from an even greater level of protection as development will only be allowed if the people directly affected by it give their consent."

New nukes on the way

The hunt for a deep disposal nuclear waste site coincides with the government's attempts to build a new generation of nuclear power stations to replace the retiring fleet.

Construction has already started at Hinkley Point C in Somerset, and the government is currently considering taking a direct stake in the subsequent projects at Moorside and Wylfa.

These plants, along with a few others in the pipeline, mean that the UK could have 27.3 million tbq of radioactive waste by 2200, more than 5x as much as it would have without the new nuclear fleet, according to figures from Radioactive Waste Management.

It comes as the UK nuclear industry is also grappling with spiralling decommissioning costs, with the head of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority this week suggesting leaving behind ‘industrial clutter in a few places' as a way of saving money - and Government has agreed, issuing a consultation on lowering standards of decommissioning.
