Following our investigations the Energy Coast Laundry which was granted a radioactive substances permit by the Environment Agency has been exposed as having had no planning permission from Allerdale Borough Council. This was vehemently denied by Allerdale Borough Council ” Chiefs at the borough council have already insisted there is “no evidence” that the operation of Energy Coast at Lillyhall represents a breach of planning law.” We were accused of “scaremongering” by David Moore, Chair of the West Cumbria Site Stakeholder Group – the group officially supposed to be holding the nuclear industry to account. The denials about this nuclear laundry have gone on for months. Now we have only until the 15th August to ‘make comments’ on this retrospective planning application. Allerdale planners have a golden opportunity now to stop this new nuclear laundry and we will be doing everything we can to make sure they do just that.
