Between today and the 25th October, Horizon Nuclear Power’s second formal stage of consultation will take place, giving people the opportunity to view its refined proposals and have their say on developments.

Information about Horizon’s proposals will be on display at a series of public exhibitions across Anglesey and north Wales, where members of the project will be available to answer questions.

We’ve listened to and reviewed carefully all the feedback we have received to date and taken this feedback into consideration whilst updating and developing our latest proposals. This is the last scheduled consultation on the Project as a whole before we submit our application for a Development Consent Order in 2017, so it’s really important that people have their say on what matters to them.

– Carl Devlin, Programme Director, Horizon

Horizon say the project to build a new nuclear power station on Anglesey will bring significant investment to the island and the wider north Wales region and help to secure its long-term economic future.

Information on the consultation is also available on Horizon's website.
