Dounreay Stakeholder Group
From April 1, 2005, the responsibility for decommissioning Dounreay and other civil nuclear sites rests with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. The decommissioning work at Dounreay will continue to be managed by UKAEA under contract to NDA in accordance with work plans developed by the contractor and agreed with the NDA. At some point in the future, the management of this work will be completed.
A new forum has been set up to give the community a greater say in these decisions. Over 20 different organisations representing every aspect of community life were invited to attend an inaugural meeting to form the Dounreay Stakeholder Group.
