Consultation starts on Wales nuclear power station

Wylfa aerial cgi 3 by 2

A major consultation on plans for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa Newydd in Wales has started.

The second-stage consultation, from August 31 to October 25, is the last chance for the public to have its say before developer Horizon Nuclear Power puts in an application for a Development Consent Order.

In particular the developer is looking for feedback on temporary accommodation for construction workers which will reach more than 10,000 at its peak, strategies for skills and jobs development, plans for a park and ride facility and what it will do to promote the Welsh language.

“Building a new nuclear power station requires a huge number of technical approvals and consents, but it also requires a social licence to operate,” said Horizon’s chief executive Duncan Hawthorne.

“I believe Wylfa Newydd has the potential to change lives for the better across Anglesey and bring major investment and opportunities for communities and individuals in North Wales and beyond – which is why we want to hear what people think of our revised proposals.”
