30th January is Ditch the Dump Day!
It is important to put in a request to Speak to Cabinet on the 30th Jan as soon as possible.
The meetings of the Executives of Copeland and Allerdale Borough Council and the County Council Cabinet are taking place on 30th Jan at different places, the same time 10am.
It is important that all of these meetings have representation from people opposed to the dump BUT the overarching authority is Cumbria County Council who represent the WHOLE of Cumbria and will have right of veto over this decision.
The more people who write to the Cabinet and ask to make representation with a question or statement the better.
You don’t need to be from Cumbria – Cumbria belongs to everyone and it is not just Cumbria affected by this insane plan.
Groups with tourist/conservation interests should make representation to Cumbria Cabinet (if you have enough people to ask questions at all three meetings so much the better)

The Cumbria Cabinet meeting will be in Carlisle at 10am (venue tbc)
Campaigners will be there at 9am to stage a demonstration opposing the
plan and urging the Cabinet to respect the wishes of its councillors and
the majority of Parish and Town Councils who have already and repeatedly said NO
It is essential that ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND SHADES OF NUCLEAR TOLERANCE who DO NOT WANT to see a MEGA NUKE DUMP installed by 2029 make their voices heard and be visible on and before the 30th January. Otherwise the government will kid on that we are a “willing community”
