The UK's Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) has launched a public consultation on its Draft Strategy, Cleaning up the UK's earliest nuclear sites, caring for people and the environment. Its strategy is a requirement of the Energy Act, covers 100+ years, is published every five years and includes a public consultation period of 12 weeks. The latest consultation ends on 8 November.
In its strategy documents, the NDA describes how it will ensure that the UK's nuclear legacy sites are decommissioned and cleaned up safely, securely, cost-effectively and in ways that protect people and the environment. Its estate consists of 17 nuclear sites across the UK, 800+ buildings to be demolished, 11 businesses and 15,000 employees.
