East Northants Resource Management Facility Permit Application.
Eden NE has supported Augean PLC in the development of the East Northants Resource Management Facility (ENRMF) since 2012. Initially providing input to the planning hearing and then producing an Environmental Safety Case (ESC) to support revision of a Permit for the receipt and disposal of low level radioactive waste disposal at the site. An ESC is a requirement of the Environment Agency that shows how a near-surface facility for solid radioactive waste disposal meets their requirement that people and the environment are protected from the hazards associated with disposals to the facility. The assessments undertaken to support the ESC cover operational and post-closure periods and future development of the site. Augean is currently preparing an application for a Development Consent Order for an extension in the area and life of the ENRMF and Eden NE are revising the ESC for the site.
