Consultation outcome: National Policy Statement for geological disposal infrastructure


The draft National Policy Statement (NPS) has been revised where appropriate, to take account of consultation responses and recommendations from Parliamentary scrutiny.

Read the final version of the National Policy Statement.

It was laid in Parliament on 24 June 2019, and, subject to the will of Parliament, will be designated in due course after that date.

The final Appraisal of Sustainability (AoS) and Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) reports will be published at the time that the final NPS is designated, alongside a Post Adoption Statement.
