Magnox has published its Socio-economic Plan 2016-19

Magnox has today published its Socio-economic Plan 2016-19.

The Magnox socio-economic plan sets out how Magnox will support the communities near Magnox sites and partner agencies to develop plans and deliver initiatives that help to mitigate the impact of decommissioning the sites. The plan incorporates feedback from stakeholders following a six-week consultation.

Magnox's aim is to deliver the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority's mission of safely and securely decommissioning the Magnox sites whilst having due regard for the communities affected and working with them in partnership to support the creation of dynamic, competitive and sustainable economies local to our sites.

Key areas of the socio-economic plan include focusing resources and support in areas such as local skills development, workforce transition, engagement with local educational establishments, apprentice schemes and supply chain and small-medium-enterprise development.

A copy of the plan is available to download:

The plan is the result of a six week stakeholder consultation period which ran from 12 January -23 February 2016. Stakeholders from the communities around our sites provided feedback which, where possible, has been reflected in the final document. A summary of the feedback received is available to download here.

Thank you to the stakeholders that contributed and provided their feedback and for their support in the finalisation of the Magnox Socio-economic Plan 2016-19.
