November 14, 2023

In September, Nuclear Waste Services (NWS) announced its decision not to take Allerdale further in the Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) siting process due to limited suitable geology.

If you would like to find out more about what this decision means or if you have any questions, please join us at the following event:

Date: Monday 27 November
Time: Presentations 3-4pm and 6-7pm
Location: Main Conference Room, St Michael’s Church, Falcon Place, Workington CA14 2EZ



Mary Bradley, Chair, Allerdale GDF Community Partnership said:

“I’d like to thank Allerdale GDF Community Partnership and the local community for getting so involved as we worked with NWS in the search for a suitable site for a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF).

“Over the past two years we’ve been actively engaging with you, however due to limited suitable geology, NWS will not be taking the area further forward.

“£2million has been awarded to over 50 local projects and NWS will continue to support work we’ve already committed to across youth engagement, Community Investment Funding and development of a community vision.

“I’m extremely proud of the work the Partnership members have collectively delivered over the past two years and want to thank them for the time they have given.

“Come and join us for our final event if you’d like to know more and ask any questions.”

Leaving a lasting legacy

Community Investment Funding, available through the GDF programme, has seen £2million awarded to over 50 local organisations across Allerdale in the past two years including schools, theatres, residents’ groups, healthcare and sports clubs.

This funding has enabled Hospice at Home, mental wellbeing, learning and intervention services to continue to deliver. The investment into schools and play areas will enhance the learning experience and encourage engagement with the wider community.

The work with sports clubs has enabled women’s changing facilities and improvements for local Sea Cadets. The funding has also supported organisations to deliver solutions to the cost of living crisis through warm rooms, food hampers and heating costs.
