A CONCERNED environmental group set up camp outside a nuclear laundry yesterday, calling for the county council to put the business under closer scrutiny. Campaigners from Radiation Free Lakeland organised the protest after Energy Coast Laundry recently submitted a planning application that would bring it in line with planning rules, despite running as a nuclear laundry since November 2018. Allerdale Council has launched a consultation into the plans, which closes on August 15. The five-strong group protested for an hour, holding signs that expressed their concern for the local area, and the planet as a whole, pushing Allerdale council to “not simply rubber-stamp the application”, and give the community their chance to vote against the washing of nuclear laundry in their town.
