while ensuring that safe, secure and environmentally responsible site operations are maintained across our estate.”


The NDA continues to deliver programme documents to help resolve remaining strategic issues within the industry. Its draft Strategy Development Programme for Site Restoration, issued in March with responses due by the end of May, will ultimately inform a set of optimised site Lifetime Plans and roadmaps for site end state delivery. The tangible benefits (i.e. restoring sites and releasing them for other uses) will then be realised through NDA client capability to select the right site contractors and manage the delivery of contracts for site restoration.

Following consultation the NDA also published in May its Strategy Development Programme for Integrated Waste Management, which will lead in due course to the estate-wide optimisation of waste management. It recognises that NDA strategies for low-level waste and for non-radioactive and hazardous waste are more mature and drive the current lifetime plans, but there is further work to be undertaken in the area of higher activity wastes (HAW) and HAW strategy development is a key focus of the published Programme. Whilst there is a focus on HAW, the programme remains an integrated waste management programme, with work in other areas, notably the need for waste management strategies to be


integrated across the estate and across nominal waste categories (high, intermediate, low and non-radioactive).


The NDA has most recently published comments and responses on the options for Dounreay exotic fuels outlined in February. This study identified two credible options:


• Continue to manage the exotics at Dounreay, as per the current baseline plan.


• Transport the exotic fuels to Sellafield for management, potentially saving £300m+.


A decision on the preferred option is expected later in 2012.
