petition was submitted by Cian Ciaran having collected a total of 10,692
Text of Petition:
We, the undersigned, call
on the Welsh Government to invoke the Environment (Wales) Act 2016 in respect
of uncertainties, and to ensure that a full Environmental Impact Assessment
(EIA) is carried out before any further sediment from Hinkley Point nuclear
power station can be dumped at Cardiff Grounds.
Don't allow the Welsh
government to break their own law!
The EIA must provide
Detailed baseline data on
the behaviour and fate of material dumped at Cardiff Grounds;
Full radiological analysis
including detection of alpha-emitting particles;
A detailed and up-to-date
assessment of potential radiological impacts on the population of south Wales;
pollutants on land rather than dispersing them at sea;
agreements on marine dumping;
Protecting the Severn
We also call on the Senedd
to ensure that any EIA is NOT scoped by pro-nuclear interests.
Committee noted that it had discussed the petition on numerous occasions and
that it was also debated in Plenary, and concluded that it was unclear what
more could be done on this issue. It therefore agreed to thank the petitioners
and close the petition.
