Welcome to the Dounreay Stakeholder Group

The Dounreay Stakeholder Group (DSG) is an independent body whose role is to provide public scrutiny of the Dounreay site, by providing an active, two-way channel of communication between the site operators, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and local stakeholders.  The Ministry of Defence (MoD) site Vulcan is also part of the remit of the DSG.

Message from the Chairman

Roger Saxon

I was honoured to be elected as the DSG Chairman on 15th March 2017 and look to continue the positive work of our previous chair. 

Dounreay has been at the heart of our community for over 50 years and while decommissioning work will continue for the next ten years or so no-one should be in doubt that the site will ultimately close.

The DSG's remit is to play an active role in overseeing and scrutinising the work of the NDA and the operators of the Dounreay site, while also also considering the operations and future options for the Vulcan site. 

There is no doubt that as the site winds down our county's economy will need to change and the work being taken forward by the Caithness and North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership (CNSRP) will be an important one going forward if we wish to see a healthy and prosperous future for ourselves and, more importantly, for our future generations to come.  That is why we will continue to take a keen interest in the socio economic activities of NDA and the site operators to ensure they are fully aligned with CNSRP.

Roger Saxon, DSG Chairman
