Cumbria fights Lillyhall dump 14/04/11

A LEGAL challenge may be brought against the Environment Agency’s decision to allow low levels of radioactive waste to be buried in Lillyhall’s conventional landfill site. Cumbria County Council, supported by Allerdale Council, is considering making the challenge. They don’t believe it is the best way of disposing of high volumes of the slightly radioactive material. Tim Knowles, county council cabinet member responsible for the environment, has asked legal and environmental officers to explore whether a challenge “is possible and feasible”.
