Cabinet Office green light Dalgety Bay radiation clean-up

Lesley Laird MP has welcomed confirmation that Dalgety Bay’s radiation clean-up operation will go ahead in summer 2020.
The Ministry of Defence gave the project the green-light following a meeting with the MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath in March.
Final confirmation was subject to financial scrutiny by the Cabinet Office, which signed-off the project last week.
Lesley Laird said: “It’s been a long haul but by keeping the pressure up we’ve finally managed to get this project over the line.
“While the MoD made a commitment to me that clean-up work would start next summer, that pledge depended entirely on the Cabinet Office signing off on a project with significantly increased costs compared to just a few years ago.
“I’m delighted that the tender documents are being released this week but I’ll continue to closely monitor developments in the months ahead to ensure this project is delivered for the people of Dalgety Bay.”
