There is currently no project at Moorside, but any new developer will need to meet the requirements of our independent regulators. The Government’s Nuclear Roadmap has set out plans to streamline future nuclear development to make Britian the best place in the world to invest in nuclear. We believe the existing EN-6 sites, such as Moorside, are likely to retain inherent positive attributes that make them suitable for consideration for development.
