Roe Deer on the 1400 acres earmarked for The Biggest Nuclear Development in Europe – #StopMoorside!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for all your actions to Stop Moorside, the biggest nuclear development in Europe.

Now one of the partners behind the proposal – Engie has said that: *Renewable energy is the new norm*

So, even Engie’s chief executive, Isabelle Koche believes that nuclear is literally a dead end.

Please write to Engie and tell them to get out of the NuGen project.

There is a sample letter below.

Many Thanks! Marianne

For the Attention of Isabelle Kocher,

Group Chief Executive Officer of Engie,

Nearly 11,000 people have signed an ongoing petition opposing the proposed Moorside nuclear plant in Cumbria. 

The Copeland area’s 2016 Local Plan said that there should be no new hazardous build or population expansion next to Sellafield. This essential precautionary approach has been ignored in the push for new nuclear. 

I agree with your recent statement to that: Renewable Energy is the new norm. I would like to know if you are happy to be repsonsible for pouring concrete over 1400 acres of greenfields, ancient woodland, hedgrows and flood plain at the village of Beckermet? 

I would like to know if you are happy to be held responsible for the inevitable  radiation linked diseases that would result from new nuclear reactors in Cumbria? 

The nuclear industry has a Compensation Scheme for Radiation Linked Diseases for the workforce but not for the infants in the school just 700 metres from the Moorside proposal.

Please pull out of the NuGen project and urge your partner Toshiba to abandon this plan which is dangerous not just for Cumbria but for our European neighbours too. 

your sincerely,

Name:
