There appears to have been some confusion about the meeting on 11th July. CALC seems to have misunderstood Cumbria Trust’s article, which was based on information about the meeting contained in the email circulated by CALC on 19 June. This included the statement: “Richard Griffin the nuclear officer at the district council will speak about the policy adopted by Allerdale borough council to the latest government initiative on a geological disposal facility. He may have some information on the last public consultation described as Site Evaluation” CALC has subsequently emailed town and parish councillors to deny that Allerdale is positioning itself for the new GDF process. That wasn’t something which Cumbria Trust suggested, or even implied. In fact we acknowledged that the recent change of Allerdale leadership represents a significant improvement on the previous executive, and is likely to lead to the council more closely representing the views of Allerdale’s electorate.
