Representatives of the Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group (BANNG) recently met with the Leader and Deputy Leader of Colchester Borough Council (CBC). It was confirmed that the Council maintains its opposition to new nuclear build at Bradwell, in accordance with the motion passed unanimously by Full Council in February 2008. It was also agreed that CBC would write to the Environment Agency (EA) to support BANNG’s opposition to the proposals in the EA’s latest consultation in relation to discharges into the Blackwater estuary of radioactivity and heavy metals, arising from the fuel element dissolution process at Bradwell. Andy Blowers, Chair of BANNG, said after the meeting: “It was good to continue BANNG’s close relationship with Colchester Borough Council and to re-affirm our common position in opposition to the development of any new nuclear power station on the Bradwell site.
