NuGen has published the dates and venues of more than 20 public consultation events being held across Cumbria on the company’s plans to build a new nuclear power station close to Sellafield Site.
The locations have been identified so that the majority of people in Copeland, that are closest to the site, live within five miles of one of the events.
Further afield, NuGen will hold exhibitions in larger population centres which have been selected so that most of the people in West Cumbria would live within eight miles of an event. Additional events will be organised in other key population areas.
All the Moorside consultation events will be open between 11.00 and 19.30 – with the exception of the first event at the soon to be opened Moorside Information Centre in Whitehaven Civic Hall on 16th May, which will run until 15.00.
Throughout the 10-week public consultation period, there will be a staffed, continuous exhibition at the Moorside Information Centre where visitors will be able to access information, ask questions and register their comments
NuGen’s consultation website is up and running, ready for the public to register and “Have Your Say”. The latest Moorside Project newsletter, which also contains a list of the dates and locations of the consultation events, has been posted to the website www.nugenconsultation.com.
