In response to me asking the Community Partnership about the above they have replied to say:

“The information from the Community Forum is being included in the scoping document for the Community Impacts report. At present we are still finalising the document, but for clarity, the scope will ask the researcher to cover both the potential negative and positive impacts, not just the negative impacts. We will then look for an independent review. As we are not at that stage yet, we do not currently have any independent bodies involved.

There will be a Community Forum to look at a draft of the Community Impact Report before final sign off in order to make sure that no issues around negative impacts or positive effects have been missed then it will be published on the Community Partnership website.”

Let’s hope they keep their word! It would be good to ensure an independent organisation conducts the independent review. Personally I would prefer it was Nuclear Waste Advisory Associates as I would trust them.
