Listen: Östhammar the day after APP
In Östhammar, the day after the announcement from the government’s yes to a final repository of spent nuclear fuel, both opportunities and challenges now await the municipality.
Ekot has talked to residents who see everything from private opportunities, such as expanding their own homes and renting them out, but also hopes from the municipality expanding the sewer system to investing more in leisure activities.
“We need to change the municipality to be able to receive this industry and receive new residents”, says Marie Berggren, at Östhammar municipality.
