We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

Pershore to support No Need For Nuclear?

Councillors in Pershore are helping to debate whether new nuclear is needed to provide energy.

PERSHORE Town Council has pledged to support an early day motion calling for an inquiry into whether or not nuclear power stations are needed.


With energy resources coming under increased scrutiny, an organisation called No Need for Nuclear approached the council and asked whether it might be willing to assist its objectives by writing to the local Member of Parliament in support of the motion.

The council, which signed up to the Pershore Transition Town movement - a group aiming to make the town less reliant on oil and develop more sustainable forms of energy - last year, voted in favour of the motion by six votes to three, but not before the issue had been discussed at length.

Coun Charles Tucker said: “This is something I would like to support. I think there is a large amount we should be doing in Pershore to become more sustainable and create more sustainable energy.”

Coun Val Wood agreed. She said: “What would we do with the waste from nuclear power stations? It causes problems all over the world.”

However other councillors were in favour of more nuclear reactors in the UK.

Former mayor, Coun Ken Rowe, said: “I think we should get on and build nuclear as soon as possible,” while Coun Peter Merry said: “Renewable energy is fine, but it is very intermittent. I don’t think it is in Pershore’s interests to obstruct the building of nuclear power stations.”

Some councillors believed this wasn’t an issue which they should even be discussing.

Coun Chris Smith said: “This is a national issue, and nothing to do with the local council. For that reason I won’t be supporting it.”

After taking a vote, the town council will now be writing to Pershore MP, Harriet Baldwin, in support of the motion. For more information on No Need for Nuclear go online at noneedfornuclear.org.uk
