The company behind plans for Wylfa Newydd power station on Anglesey has today set out how people can have their say on its new nuclear build plans.

Horizon Nuclear Power has set up a 10 week consultation period on the proposed multi-billion pound power station.

The consultation is a major step in the planning process and is the first time people will be able to view the company's proposals for Wylfa Newydd in detail.

People will be able to access the information online, at a series of public exhibitions and at libraries across north Wales and Anglesey.

It is crucial that people have the opportunity to have their say on our proposals. Wylfa Newydd is a major investment in the region and brings with it a wide range of benefits, from the economic to the educational, so we want to encourage people to take the time to get involved and understand what the project means for them, for the local area, and for Wales and the UK more widely.

– Alan Raymant, Chief Operating Officer at Horizon
