Northamptonshire radioactive waste dump battle lost
Wednesday 18 January 2012
Campaigners have lost a Court of Appeal battle to stop low-level radioactive waste being dumped near their village.
They challenged Communities Secretary Eric Pickles' decision to grant planning permission for disposal of the waste at a landfill site close to Kings Cliffe, Northamptonshire.
Village resident Louise Bowen-West, a member of Kings Cliffe Wastewatchers, expressed her "disappointment" after the appeal court upheld a High Court ruling in favour of waste company Augean Plc being allowed to go-ahead with the controversial project.
