Horizon continues consultations in preparation for planning application

Horizon Nuclear Power continues is making strong progress in its plans to submit a planning application for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa on Anglesey. It is holding its latest formal consultation session today and there will be a further two meetings before the closing date for submissions to their consultation on 24 March.

The company is clearly mounting a large exercise to make sure everyone on the island is very well informed about the project as in addition to these meetings focused on the latest formal consultation the company is also holding monthly open surgeries. These meetings allow local people to drop in and talk to Horizon staff about a wide range of subjects. The latest one of which is at Cemaes Village Hall on Monday 15 February from 1pm-7pm.


Richard Foxhall, Horizon’s Stakeholder Relations Manager, said: “The public events we’ve been holding across Anglesey over the last few weeks have been very well attended, and we’re enjoying the opportunity to share details on a wide range of subjects from landscaping on site to how and where we might accommodate construction workers. Our Open Surgeries continue too and we’re looking forward to being back in Cemaes next Monday.”

The remaining meetings on the consultation itself will take place at the Celtic Royal Hotel, Caernarfon, on 24 February and St. Mary’s Church Hall, Conwy, on 25 February (both events from 11am to 2pm and 4pm to 7pm). The consultation itself is available at: www.horizonnuclearpower.com/consultation

Horizon will be following this consultation up with a series of community focus groups on specific areas of the project.
