On the 25th of January 2018 the Welsh Government issued a Consultation Document on the “Geological disposal of radioactive waste – Working with potential host communities” (Responses by 20 April 2018)
The document seeks views on the arrangements for engaging with communities in Wales considering hosting a Geological Disposal Facility(GDF) or waste dump. Questions include:
what might constitute a community + how they might be identified (e.g. County Council, Community Council, landowner, a community group or a local group of businesses?)
how communities should be represented and how to involve people in the wider community
the right of withdrawal and the test of public support
the financial implications.
