Revised Environmental Permit granted

LLW Repository Ltd has received a revised environmental permit to allow continued disposal of wastes at our site near Drigg, in West Cumbria.

The news is the culmination of seven years’ hard work within the organisation.

Obtaining a permit for disposal is a major milestone for LLWR and was a key objective of the NDA when awarding the new contract for managing LLWR in 2008.

In October 2013 LLWR submitted an application to the Environment Agency (EA) – supported by an Environmental Safety Case submitted in May 2011 – to vary its environmental permit, and the EA went on to consult on the application before arriving at a decision.
