Site Evaluation consultations - public events

An opportunity to meet the Radioactive Waste Management team and ask questions about the Site Evaluation consultations currently underway

Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) has organised a series of events to help people understand the context of RWM’s proposed approach to Site Evaluation for a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) and to answer any questions individuals or organisations may have about our current consultations.

These events do not constitute part of the formal consultation process and views expressed and questions asked at the events will not be formally included in the consultation analysis. To contribute to the consultations, individuals and organisations will need to submit their views and insights via email or post to RWM. A response form and details on how views can be submitted can be found on the consultation home page.

In England, public events are being held in:

  • Cambridge – Thursday 7 February
  • London – Wednesday 13 February
  • Birmingham – Thursday 14 February
  • Manchester – Tuesday 19 February
  • Penrith – Wednesday 20 February
  • Cheltenham – Tuesday 26 February
  • Exeter – Thursday 28 February
  • Darlington – Thursday 7 March

There are also two events in Wales:

  • Swansea - Tuesday 12 March

  • Llandudno - Thursday 14 March

The events are generally aimed to inform interested, non-specialists. With the exception of London and Manchester, each of the venues will host two events, one in the early afternoon (12.00-3.00pm) and the other in the evening (6.00-9.00pm). They will include refreshments and will last three hours in total. The content of both is the same, so participants can choose the one that suits them best.

The London and Manchester events will be run as single, extended meetings from 10am to 4pm. These two events are aimed at people who want to go into greater detail about the content and background to RWM’s Site Evaluation approach.

If you would like to attend one of these meetings – either as an individual or the representative of an organisation, please email us at: siteevaluation@nda.gov.uk. Please tell us:

  • your name, organisation (if any), email and contact telephone number (optional)
  • the date and city of your choice and, where appropriate, your choice of afternoon or evening meeting
  • any special requirements in terms of access and diet.

We will then send full details of the venue and joining instructions. We will only use the information you give to us in connection with this consultation.
