National Park Authority says it's 'Not Appropriate' to Object....
Meanwhile we go....Into Eternity with Lakeland Nuke Dump
The custodians of the Lake District appear to wish to stay neutral
over the plans for an underground nuclear dump for highly radioactive
waste in the Western Lake District.
This is what is happening in Finland...and will happen in Cumbria soon....
Estimate: June 2010 in the Commons..Charles Hendry stated:
NDA's total discounted lifetime cost estimate for the establishment of
the geological disposal facility for higher activity wastes is £4.3
billion, of which NDA's share as shown in its Annual Report and Accounts
is £3.7 billion with the remainder being funded by other waste producers.
This investment will be incurred over a period of many decades and includes
costs for research, design, construction, operation and final closure.

October 2009: in responses to an LDNPA consultation excercise one
comment was..."the LDNPA “no view” shows an arrogant disregard
for the health and safety of people who live here and the 12 million
visitors. The National Park should take a firm, strong moral stand.
But LDNPA then responds...: Our response to your comments Proposed
Action ? continue to work with partners on this issue and include
a policy on “major developments” in the core strategy. Detailed
