Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima

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!

Should Horizon invite the EA to look at Shepperdine site?

This is an email we have sent to Tim Proudler today----We feel it could save a lot of time and money if Horizon did this.

Hi Tim

This article features in the Western Daily Press today:-

Meeting to discuss safety implications of Hinkley plans

Meeting to discuss safety implications of Hinkley plans
The Environment Agency will meet with French energy giant EDF today to talk through details of the proposed new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset.
Simon Hughes, the national project executive for nuclear new build at the Environment Agency, and Simon Birch, head of town and country planning, will meet with EDF site management at Hinkley.
The meeting is the first real opportunity for senior Environment Agency managers to see the site and fully understand EDF's preferred options for the proposed Hinkley C development, which would replace the existing Hinkley B station.
Brian Payne, nuclear new build project manager for the Environment Agency, said: "This meeting is an ideal opportunity for us to develop our response to EDF's stage 2 proposals by having informed discussions about the proposed nuclear power station with the operator actually on site at Hinkley.

"We have a vital role to play in protecting the environment and people by both responding to the planning proposals for the site and preparing to consult on future environmental permits.
"It is really important that our senior staff see the site for themselves and are introduced to the complexities of the development."
The agency is working with the Health & Safety Executive to ensure any new nuclear power station meets a high standard of safety.
I realise you are not as far ahead as EDF but it may be prudent to show the EA the complexities of the Shepperdine site so they can appraise the site properly.

What do you think?
