Nuclear Issues

West Cumbria is at the heart of the UK's nuclear industry, with about 12,000 direct jobs making a major contribution to the Copeland and west Cumbrian economy.

The County Council works closely with Copeland and Allerdale Borough Councils, and many other partners in responding to the changing face of the nuclear industry.

In the following pages there are links to the sites of many organisations making a contribution to safe, secure, nuclear development in Cumbria.
