Nuclear Legacy Advisory Forum


Under the auspices of the Local Government Association, the Special Interest Group (SIG) on Radioactive Waste Management and Nuclear Decommissioning was created in November 2003, when a small group of concerned Local Authorities (including Cumbria County Council and Copeland Borough Council) recognised the need to reflect the concerns of society as a whole on these important issues.

At their meeting in April 2005, it was agreed to rename the SIG as the Nuclear Legacy Advisory Forum - NuLeAF.

The forum ensures effective communications and efficient information sharing amongst Local Authorities.  It also consults its members on issues of national nuclear waste and legacy management that are brought forward from bodies such as the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management.
