It is so dangerous and the government and its lackies at the NDA are just ripping as much out of the decrepid site before its ultimate closure.
This is a symtom of British political life....no proper infrastrusture, no planning, just do it! attitude
In relation to your questions below, hopefully the following will be useful:
Can you please confirm how many people will work on site and for how long when decommissioning commences?
The Environmental Impact Assessment for Decommissioning (EIAD) produced for Oldbury states that during Care and Maintenance Preparations (scheduled for 2014-2027) the number of permenant employees at Oldbury will reduce to 360. During Care and Maintenance (scheduled for 2027 - 95) staffing levels will be significantly lower but will cover necessary security and maintenance requirements. During Final Site Clearance (2096 - 2101) permenant employees are likely to reach 450.
I would like to know the views of Magnox on the letter from Dr. Georgui Kastchiev which recommends that both Oldbury and Wylfa should be closed down to avoid any further risks to the people of Europe.
Magnox do not own the Oldbury site - we are the contractors tasked with running the site on behalf of the NDA and so it would be inappropriate for us to comment on this letter. You may wish to refer this question to the NDA instead, however our independent regulator, the ONR (Office for Nuclear Regulation) would not allow the site to operate if they did not feel it was safe to do so.
If you can confirm what time the next SSG will take place I will endeavour to make it and also will keep the members of SANE informed.
The next SSG is scheduled to take place on Wednesday July 20, 2011, commencing at 1pm and will be held at the Oldbury site Conference Centre (the building we met you in on Monday). These meetings are open to the public and we always advertise them through the local media and place a sign at the junction for Oldbury village (the 'triangular' junction between Oldbury Lane and Pickedmoor Lane) stating where and when the next meeting will be held.
I hope this information is useful.
