Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Letter from Horizon PR Contact Samantha Stagg

We have received an email letter from Samantha which details some points about the March 4th meeting.

You can also check this out on .

It is believrd that Horizon will be releasing their scoping document very soon, perhaps even on the 4th?

Dear Reg

Thanks for your ongoing interest in Horizon Nuclear Power's forthcoming events in Thornbury on 4th March. I think its worth clarifying exactly what the 4th March is all about, and importantly what it is not.

The drop-in surgery provides an ongoing opportunity for members of the public to drop in and chat with us if they wish to meet members of the team or ask questions, and supplements the other channels we have for communication through our website e-mail, freephone number and newsletters. This is an initiative on our part, and not any formal requirement, and follows on from a similar event a few months back which was well attended and for which we received constructive feedback.

It's really important that people understand that we haven’t yet begun any formal pre-application consultation (as required by the Planning Act 2008). The development and design for the proposed new nuclear power station at Oldbury will need to have advanced somewhat to allow us to carry out the consultation, and we will publicise this widely before it is undertaken.

At this stage, we’re trying to keep people abreast of the early development work which will then develop as our initial studies are completed.

The talk in the evening is in response to feedback received from members of the public at our exhibitions and previous drop-in surgery. It is intended to be an informative presentation on the main aspects to be considered in developing a large infrastructure project such as new nuclear build at Oldbury, and it is aimed at a general audience. Following on from the recent Planning Aid meeting in Oldbury and the DECC event in Thornbury, and in again in response to feedback from the public, we will also try and re-cap on the pre-application consultation process as it applies to new nuclear build, and where the public can have their say.

To avoid any confusion or misunderstanding about the nature of the forthcoming event on the 4th March, we believe that it would be very helpful if this email could be uploaded to your blog and on behalf of Horizon Nuclear Power would like to express our thanks for this.

Yours sincerely


Samantha Stagg

James Reed Public Relations, Bristol, on behalf of Horizon Nuclear Power
