The NDA Draft Business Plan sets out key activities and expected progress for all 17 of the NDA's nuclear sites over the next 3 years. We want to hear from anyone who has a comment on any aspect of this document.

This consultation closes at 2:30pm on 29 January 2024.

Consultation description
The NDA is responsible for one of the important environmental programmes in the world, decommissioning the UK's earliest nuclear sites safely, securely and sustainably, to leave a long-lasting positive legacy for future generations.

The Draft Business Plan reflects the NDA's most recent Strategy, published in 2021, and sets out key activities and the progress expected across all its sites during the next 3 years, in line with funding allocated by the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ).

Publication follows another year of progress across the NDA group, including significant steps to reduce hazards at Sellafield, where waste is being retrieved from all four legacy ponds and silos for the first time.

A restructure was also completed to create a simpler, stronger NDA group, taking opportunities to get the best value from working more closely together. The final planned step saw Dounreay join Magnox this year, becoming known collectively as Nuclear Restoration Services.

The Draft Business Plan sets out an ambitious programme for the next 3 years, with the focus remaining on safe delivery of the mission, the creation of great places to work and being trusted to do more. The mission will be progressed on a number of fronts, reducing hazards and aiming to get further benefits from working as a group. Significant projects will also be taken forward, including the work to identify a site that could host a Geological Disposal Facility.

The period covered by the Business Plan will also see change as the NDA is trusted to do more, including preparations for the first Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor site to transfer to the NDA group from EDF Energy for decommissioning.
