We have received an application from FCC Recycling (UK) Ltd to make changes to its Radioactive Substances Activities (RSA) Permit at the Lillyhall landfill site in Cumbria. The RSA permit controls receipt and disposal of radioactive waste at the site.
We are seeking comments on this application to change the permit. Public consultation helps us to take account of any information that people think is relevant to our decision making. It also gives people the opportunity to understand the proposed changes.
The proposed changes to the permit are as follows:
to increase the current activity limits for the disposal of radioactive waste in the permit from 4Bq/g (or 40 Bq/g for tritium) to a maximum average consignment activity limit of 200 Bq/g
updating the permit to the latest template so that it reflects recent guidance changes
