Multi-billion-pound proposal for nuclear waste disposal facility ‘will not be forced’ on Hartlepool. Hartlepool will not be allowed to bury the country’s nuclear waste without the town giving its blessing, leaders behind the scheme have said. Hartlepool has been identified as a potential host site for a multi-billion pound underground store for all of the UK’s higher activity radioactive waste in a development called a Geological Disposal Facility. Public organisation Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) is leading the project to find a willing community and development of the facility on behalf of the Government. Presentations have been held on behalf of RWM by Hartlepool community organisation The Wharton Trust and no specific site has been identified.

We have been sent a leaked document indicating that Radioactive Waste Management, the government body tasked with “Delivery of a Geological Disposal Facility” have employed a company involved in “behavioural science” to monitor independent conversations of those talking online about the deep nuclear dump plan. The Cumbrian nuclear safety group have sent this leaked report to Lincolnshire County Council and East Lindsey District Council urging them to follow the example of the most nuclear sympathetic County in the UK, Cumbria, and exclude themselves from the RWM agenda which is to implement one or more geological disposal facilities. The nuclear safety group argue that the science of deep disposal of nuclear wastes is in its infancy and that instead of spending billions of pounds on behavioural scientists in order to deliver a dangerous deep nuclear dump, all effort should be made on containment at the Sellafield site.
