The Planning Application PL1508 5 (4/15/9012): “The phased construction of additional vaults, higher stacking of containers..capping.. ” was due to be heard “in early 2016.” First we were told this would be in April, then May – now the decision has been put back once again. The next possible time it may be heard is June 23rd ….but we will not know for sure until 7 days ahead of the meeting by the Development Control and Regulation Committee of Cumbria County Council. The toothless Environment Agency have already given their blessing and the operators have already poured tonnes of concrete over coastal land precariously near to the Drigg dunes for more “vaults” despite planning approval having not been given. Try doing that with a tiny porch in Cumbria and the planners are down on you like a ton of bricks…but acres of “vaults” to stack shipping containers full of radioactive wastes….no problem.
