Government agency first spoke to a Lincs council about dumping nuclear waste two years ago. It wanted to “encourage interested parties and local communities to come forward and engage on the subject of geological disposal”. The Government agency behind a potential nuclear waste dump in Lincolnshire has revealed it first spoke to East Lindsey District Council about the concept of burying radioactive rubbish deep underground back in mid-2019. Radioactive Waste Management also confirmed that the idea of re-using the former gas terminal at Theddlethorpe as a Geological Disposal Facility’ (GDF) was initially discussed with ELDC and Lincolnshire County Council last year.

Over 1,500 people have signed a petition to say no to plans to store nuclear waste underground on the Lincolnshire coast. Plans emerged to dispose of nuclear waste at a site near Mablethorpe this week, as Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) said it was in “early discussions” with Lincolnshire County Council about using the former ConocoPhillips Gas Terminal in Theddlethorpe as a Geological Disposal Facility, but that no decisions had been made. Lincolnshire County Council Leader Martin Hill claimed it was only 10 days ago they had a presentation from the firm, and that it was the first time they’d had a meeting with them. He also said a “binding” local referendum would be held and “if it’s a no, that’s the end of it”, according to the BBC.
