Environment Agency consultation on GDA findings

The Environment Agency has today launched a consultation on their preliminary conclusions following their detailed assessment so far of the EDF and AREVA UK EPR and Westinghouse AP1000 new nuclear plant designs.

They will carefully consider respondents’ views in reaching their decision on whether to issue a statement of design acceptability.

The 16 week consultation began on 28 June 2010 and will close on 18 October 2010. Responses should arrive by 18 October 2010.
