Nuclear Free Local Authorities tackle in practical ways, and within their powers, the problems posed by civil and military nuclear hazards. As the local government voice on nuclear issues, the NFLA are keen to encourage local authorities to adopt anti-nuclear policies and join our network – particularly as the Government plan for nuclear power to be part of the mix of energy supply for the UK over the next 40 years, and are spending billions of pounds each year on replacement nuclear weaponry. See the nuclear issues section to see why this is relevant to every local authority in the UK and Ireland.
The NFLA aims to:
•Increase local accountability over national nuclear policy;
•Identify the impact of national nuclear policy on local communities;
•Work to minimise nuclear hazards and increase public safety
