Nuclear Authorities to discuss impacts on new nuclear power stations.
It is important that local authorities work together, says Suffolk Coastal District Council.
Copeland Borough Council will host the New Nuclear Local Authorities Group (NNLAG) Conference on March 8 until March 10.
The conference will discuss housing, transport and tourism impacts of a nuclear new build. There will also be an opportunity to hear updates from local authority colleagues on proposals, including Sizewell in Suffolk.
The NNLAG consists of 15 Local Authorities from across the UK who are likely to be affected by and benefit from proposals for new nuclear power stations.
Chair of NNLAG, Cllr Geoff Holdcroft, Deputy Leader of Suffolk Coastal District Council, said: “A major national infrastructure project has a massive impact on any area. It is important that we local authorities work together to maximise the benefits for our communities, while minimising the negative impacts.”
