Join us

Thank you for your interest in joining the Mid Copeland GDF Community Partnership. This is your chance to be part of the conversation about the biggest environmental protection project of our lifetime.

The Partnership plans, over a number of years, to take forward discussions about whether Mid Copeland (including the electoral wards of Gosforth & Seascale and Beckermet) could be the right place to host a Geological Disposal Facility.

The geological advice will be provided by the developer, the GDF team in Nuclear Waste Services (NWS). The Community Partnership will be where discussions take place between the developer, Copeland Borough Council and local communities.

We are currently seeking new Community Partnership members (aged 18 and over) to join us from the following sectors:

  • Business
  • Youth
  • Tourism
  • Farming

It is important that the Mid Copeland GDF Community Partnership is reflective of the community. This is important as the Community Partnership will develop a ‘Programme of Activities’ which responds to, and addresses, local questions raised from all sections of the community across the Search Area.

As well as recruiting members of the Mid Copeland GDF Community Partnership, we will be developing other opportunities for members of the community to become involved through subgroups and stakeholder forums.  These opportunities are still in early stages, and we hope to be able to provide further details later this year.

Applications close on Friday 1st July - Interviews will be held week commencing 18th July

For further information, please review the selection criteria in the recruitment pack below.
