Pop-up events in Copeland on geological disposal
Copeland GDF Working Group is holding a series of pop-up events over the
next few weeks to continue the conversation about geological disposal and
what it could mean for Copeland.
A Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) is an underground facility designed to safely
and securely dispose of higher activity radioactive waste.
Members of the community are invited to drop-in and have a chat with the local
community engagement team, pick up a leaflet, ask a question or share views. The
informal events will take place in different areas of Copeland – limited to small
numbers to ensure Covid-safety and will operate within Government guidance.
They will be followed by a larger exhibition roadshow which the Working Group plans
to run during September.
Gillian Johnston, Copeland Working Group’s Community Engagement Manager,
“We’re looking forward to being able to speak face to face with people about what
geological disposal could mean for Copeland. The Working Group is here to help
inform people about GDF, listen to views and answer any questions people may
have. Come along and have a chat with the local team.”
The drop-ins are being held in the following locations:
July 22 Cleator Moor Town Council offices, Market Square, 10am-3pm
July 28 Thwaites Village Hall, 10am-3pm
July 30 Cumbria Traders’ Day Market, St Nicholas’ Gardens, Whitehaven,
Aug 5 Egremont Meeting Place, Methodist Church, 10am-3pm
Aug 11 Seascale Library, 10am-3pm
Aug 20 Millom Conservative & Unionist Club, Lapstone Road, 10am-3pm
Aug 24 Former Belvoir shop, King Street, Whitehaven, 10am-3pm
The larger exhibitions are set to take place from September 1-17th around Copeland
and will feature information boards, interactive activities and experts in different
subjects to help answer questions.
As part of the process to find a site for a GDF in England or Wales, a Working Group
was formed in Copeland last November. It has three main tasks – begin to
understand community issues, examine any concerns and questions the public has
about a GDF; identify a search area or areas within Copeland and recruit initial
members for a Community Partnership which could take that work forward.
Construction of a GDF facility is based on consent – which means there must be a
suitable site and a willing community in order to proceed.
The Working Group is available to speak to groups, help to answer questions and
provide information. Please get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 0300 369 0000. For further information, see the website:
www.copeland.workinginpartnership.org.uk where you can also sign up for a monthly
newsletter and please also visit the virtual exhibition:
Notes to editors
1. A GDF would be made up of highly engineered vaults and tunnels located deep underground
designed to protect people and the environment and keep the radioactive waste safe and secure
while the radioactivity naturally decays to safe levels.
2. Successive UK Governments, supported by scientific advice, agree that geological disposal is the
right long-term solution for our higher activity radioactive waste, and there is overwhelming
international consensus, with advanced programmes now underway in Canada, Finland, France,
Sweden, Switzerland and many other countries.
3. The independent Committee on Radioactive Waste Management (CoRWM) recommends that
geological disposal, coupled with safe and secure interim storage, is the best approach for the
long-term management of the UK’s higher activity radioactive waste.
4. The search for a host community is a nationwide process, construction is based on community
consent, and includes detailed investigations to make sure there is a suitable site to construct a
safe and secure GDF. If the independent regulators don’t agree that a GDF can be designed,
constructed and operated safely and securely then it won’t be built.
About the Copeland Working Group and the GDF siting process
The Working Group in Copeland is made up of individuals and organisations who asked RWM to
consider whether a GDF could be located in the area, an independent Chair, independent facilitator,
RWM, and others such as Local Authorities from the area. The group will begin local discussions and
fact-finding with the community.
Establishing a Working Group is just the starting point for engaging with the community, in a process
that will take several years. The Working Group will identify and propose a Search Area for further
consideration in the search for potentially suitable sites, engage citizens across the community to
begin to understand their views, and recruit initial members for a Community Partnership with RWM
that could take the process further forward.
For further information go to the website: Working Group Copeland
Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), formed in 2014, is responsible for geological disposal to
manage higher activity waste in England and Wales by finding a willing community and suitable site to
construct and operate a UK GDF for the long-term management of higher-activity radioactive waste.
RWM is a public organisation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nuclear Decommissioning
Cumbria Police’s Child Centred Policing Teams’
‘Did You Know’ Campaign
Following the success of our Child Centred Policing Team’s (CCPT) ‘Did You Know’, campaign, lots of you have asked if we could share the campaign’s content again.
The campaign provided youth-focused, educational information, guidance, and support for parents, carers, educators, and young people.
You can find highlights of the campaign’s topics and resources in this newsletter, or search #DidYouKnow on our social media accounts.
About Cumbria’s Child Centred Policing Team
The CCPT were implemented by Inspector Gemma Hannah and Detective Chief Inspector James Yallop in 2020, following extensive research into childhood offending, conducted with the support of partner constabularies.
A child centred approach to policing aims to improve the quality of policing for children by acknowledging their differences, recognising their vulnerabilities, and meeting their needs. By doing this we can prevent the unnecessary criminalisation of children, signposting them to relevant support services and providing opportunities for positive interventions.
Sexting/Sending Naked Pictures
We live in a world where living part of your life on the internet is the norm. The web is a place of considerable knowledge and development, but it can also be the root of some serious dangers.
Sexting is the sharing of explicit pictures or video through mobile phones/other devices and the internet.

Child exploitation is child abuse where children and young people are manipulated and coerced into committing crime. Children as young as 10 in Cumbria are being put in danger by criminals who take advantage of how vulnerable these young people are.
Read about the work Cumbria Police and the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership, are doing to raise awareness of Child Exploitation by clicking here.
Sex without consent is rape and anything less than a yes is a no.
The more we can talk about the subject of consent, the more awareness we can raise on what it is and means and it’s importance.
You can find out more on talking to young people about consent by clicking here.
Healthy and Unhealthy Relationships
Relationships can make people feel fantastic, supported, and loved.
Understanding the signs of an unhealthy relationship, could help with identifying that you or a friend or loved one is at risk of harm.
Find out more about the signs of an unhealthy relationship and support services you can contact by clicking here.
If you’re a young person looking for advice click here.
We have recently released some youth focused artwork (below) as a discussion starter for Healthy and unhealthy relationships.
Understanding the law and the consequences of criminal behaviour, is vital for us to make an informed decision as to our actions.
The Child Centred Policing teams raised awareness of common areas of crime and their consequences through posts like this one.
Other areas of crime that were covered, included:
