TEMPORARY PERMISSION GIVEN AGAIN
Thursday, August 23, 2001
A building at Sellafield which has been temporary for the last eight years has been given the okay to continue for another five years - on a temporary basis, of course.
The building, once a canteen, was first given planning permission in 1992 to serve as a temporary training facility for Thorp.
This was renewed in 1996 for a further temporary period of five years.
With its expiry at the end of August, BNFL applied to Copeland council for another five years - again temporary.
Copeland's planning panel gave it a rubber stamping but not before chairman, Coun Sam Meteer exclaimed: "Another temporary one."
Then Coun David Moore, who is chairman of the Sellafield Local Liaison Committee, quipped: "Perhaps sometime we could have a review of all the temporary buildings on the Sellafield site."
