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.
