Original consultation

We want your views on proposals for engaging communities in Wales that may wish to host a geological disposal facility (GDF) for radioactive waste.

Consultation description

A GDF will only be built in Wales if a community is willing to host it.

We are consulting on:

  • arrangements for engaging with communities which may wish to enter discussions,
  • how the boundaries of the potential host community might be defined,
  • how community investment funding should be distributed,
  • access by a community in discussions to independent third party expert views,
  • how and when a community’s right to withdraw from discussions should operate,
  • how and when to test  public support to ensure that a community is willing to host a GDF.
