Consultation community events

During its consultation, the Partnership organised twelve community events across Cumbria where people were able to come and find out more.

There were information displays on the issues involved, and Partnership members, specialists from the Government (the Department of Energy and Climate Change), the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the regulators, and an independent geology expert, were available for people to talk to and ask questions. 

The events ran from 1pm 7pm, and discussion sessions were also held for those who were interested.

More than 800 people attended, with five school groups also attending the events at Whitehaven, Kendal, Workington, Carlisle and Wigton.

People who attended were able to fill in their responses to the consultation at the events, or take away a consultation pack to complete their responses afterwards. The views received at the events will be fed into the wider consultation, and will be reported alongside other input.

The dates and venues of the events were:
