UKs most valuable remediation project may begin

The UK's most valuable land remediation project - Dounreay's shaft and silo waste retrieval programme - has secured consent to get underway from Highland Council.

The Council has reached a processing agreement with Dounreay Site Restoration giving planning consent in principle for the construction of plants to retrieve remotely, package and store the intermediate level waste from the shaft and silo.

"A lot of people have contributed to us getting the planning permission, and I would like to thank them for their work," said shaft and silo director Bo Wier.

"This means that we can get on with infrastructure activity in preparation for the construction of the buildings that we need to empty the shaft and silo and package the waste so that it can be stored in the ILW waste store safely,  securely and in an environmentally responsible way."
