Copeland, is on the cusp of a massive programme of economic growth comparable with many of the UKs leading cities, but set in one of the most dramatic and beautiful locations, with two-thirds of our Borough being in the Lake District National Park.
Already established as the Centre of Nuclear Excellence and world leader in the nuclear sector, the Borough is currently the focal point for two Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects; the Moorside Nuclear Power Station and National Grid’s North West Coast Connections Project which together will create massive investment in local infrastructure, housing and community facilities.
The Moorside Power Station is set to provide energy for up to six million homes and will create thousands of skilled job opportunities through both the construction and operation of the plant. The North West Coast Connections Project will carry the power generated by Moorside and is the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by National Grid. Add to this the challenges presented by the on-going decommissioning of the Sellafield site, the proposals from United Utilities for their West Cumbria Water Supplies Project and plans from West Cumbria Mining for a new coking coal mine and it is clear to see that the next ten years will see massive opportunities for businesses and individuals to shape their futures.
Our growth plans are becoming our reality. We are now seeking talented and ambitious individuals who want to build their career at the same time as making a contribution to shaping the future of the Borough, and the UK.
