An environmental pressure group is to protest outside a nuclear laundry following news of its late planning application. Campaigners from Radiation Free Lakeland will protest outside Energy Coast Laundry’s site on Tuesday, saying they are growing more concerned about how the nuclear industry is affecting the area. The group’s action was prompted by the laundry’s submission of a planning application to bring it in line with planning rules. Protestors attending the hour-long demonstration, which will begin at 3pm, are pressing for the nuclear laundry “to be halted as a matter of urgency”, stating that it needs to undergo “rigorous planning scrutiny” from the full county council.
