Plan for new nuclear bomb facility

leftThe Atomic Weapons Establishement has submitted a planning application to West Berkshire Council for a new facility to assemble nuclear weapons.

This is a major part of the Government's plan to rebuild much of Britain's nuclear bomb factory. Like the current assembly facility (photo) the new building will be at Burghfield which is a few miles from Aldermaston.

It is important that a large number of objections are submitted against this proposal.
