Under consideration

 

This petition was submitted by Cian Ciaran having collected a total of 10,692 signatures.

 

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!

 

Additional Information

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;

 

Containing nuclear pollutants on land rather than dispersing them at sea;

 

Respecting international agreements on marine dumping;

 

Protecting the Severn Estuary.

 

We also call on the Senedd to ensure that any EIA is NOT scoped by pro-nuclear interests.
