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!

Latest construction plans from Eon

This article is from Thornbury People--------

I see that Tim doesnt regard the public--presumably the community--as a key stakeholder.

Really sad!

The company behind the plans for the latest power station have revealed their preliminary plans for the construction of the new site.

As things currently stand a planning application is likely to be submitted in 2014, with preliminary work beginning in 2016, followed by main construction in 2019.
Tim Proudler, Horizon Nuclear Power's planning and consents manager for Oldbury said:
"We are confident that the Oldbury site meets all of the criteria set out by the Government as part of its Strategic Siting Assessment (SSA) for new nuclear development, including the requirement to be operational by 2025."
"We would like to make use of the additional time at Oldbury to work with our key stakeholders and the public to develop our ideas further - particularly in areas such as flood protection measures, the cooling system and transport options."
"After that we would begin the full Environmental Impact Assessment work, prior to submitting a planning application. The new timeline will also allow us to work closely with local people and ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to have their say as our plans develop."
The Gazette reports that the new plant could create up to 800 permanent jobs in the area, as well as an additional 5000 during the plants construction.
