The Story So Far

WORKING ON THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CHAPELCROSS NUCLEAR SITE

Memorandum of Understanding

The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is the first public move towards and exciting 30 year development programme.  Works will necessitate considerable infrastructure improvements to the M74 and the A75 link between Stranraer and Carlisle.  And on site, as decommissioning continues in its centre, a phased approach means some plots available now, subject to infrastructure improvements and site assembly work.  Through the MoU all three partners have confirmed their commitment to collaborating on what is expected to be South of Scotland’s most significant low carbon employment site of both regional and national importance.

With access to the national grid and a potential power line south of the Solway all in their ownership, the partners have aspirations for a site which mixes industry, commerce and energy businesses and sees localised energy production as a key ingredient in its attractiveness.  A proposal to achieve Simplified Planning Zone (SPZ) status is underway and during the coming months a comprehensive development plan, following the Framework recommendations, will be put in place. In the meantime, interest is starting to materialise from businesses keen to explore the possibility of becoming future anchor occupants.
