MOORSIDE CONSULTATION - last chance to have your say

Whether you agree with me or disagree that the community of West Cumbria, and Britain, desperately needs for the Moorside nuclear new build project to go ahead, this week is your last chance to have your say in State Two of the consultation, which concludes on Saturday.

The Moorside Project is a nationally significant infrastructure project and must be consented through the Planning Act 2008 via a ‘Development Consent Order’ (DCO). Before a DCO can be made, NuGen is required to consult with those living in the vicinity of the land to which its proposed application relates, key local authorities, persons with an interest in the land and prescribed statutory bodies, as well as publicising its proposed application nationally.
NuGen’s consultation process involves two stages:
  • Stage One: Strategic Issues Consultation, which was carried out from 16th May 2015 to 25th July 2015.
  • Stage Two: Proposed Scheme Consultation which will run from 14th May 2016 to 30th July 2016.
NuGen has published a ‘Statement of Community Consultation’ (SoCC) which sets out how NuGen is carrying outwill carry out the Stage Two Consultation and consult with people in the vicinity of the development.

NuGen is asking people to ‘HAVE YOUR SAY’ on our latest proposals and the consultation website at

will provide you with all the information you need to get involved.
