Nuclear legacy

The Oldbury Nuclear Power station, near Oldbury on Severn, generated electricity for some 44 years. It ceased generating electricity in February 2012, and is currently being de-fuelled.  Further information on the site and its progress towards decommissioning is available on the Magnox web site.

The council has responded to consultations by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) on options for the storage of Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) arising from the Oldbury power station, prior to its planned long term disposal in a proposed Geological Disposal Facility, as well as on options for the treatment of fuel element debris.  Further information on the NDA’s proposals may be found on their web site.  We have submitted responses and these are available to view as PDF files at the side of this page.

In order to better understand and respond to relevant nuclear legacy issues as they arise, the council belongs to the Nuclear Legacy Advisory Forum (NuLeAF). The NuLeAF web site is a source of further information on related matters.
