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!

Press Release from Horizon and finally some mock up photos!

We thank Tim and his team for keeping us in the loop on what is a very important matter for the SANE community.

You can see the press release at :-

Dear Reg,

Just wanted you to be aware of a press release that is being issued tomorrow (8th September), which concerns Horizon’s thinking on the cooling towers that could be used as part of a future nuclear power station near Oldbury. Clearly this has been a key concern on your blog. We’ll be posting the press release on our website, and we’ll also be door-dropping letters locally (in Shepperdine, Nupdown, Oldbury Naite and Oldbury-on-Severn) to explain the context. You may wish to include a copy of the letter and press release (both attached) on your blog. We’ll also be e-mailing the information in the door drop letter to those who have signed up to be kept informed by that route.

Kind regards,


Tim Proudler

Planning & Consents Manager – Oldbury

  1. The hybrid towers look hideous, they will be just as high or possibly higher than the existing station (which is massive in itself) but fill an area 4 times the length. A vast expanse of industrial nastiness in an area of natural countryside is just dreadful. This announcement has been timed to squash the opposition to this monster. By telling us last year we could have had 200m towers and then now saying actually they will be less than half the height they are hoping everyone will give up thinking that this is much better. But its still hideous!!!!!!!!

  2. Rather like Stoneyard LAne saying they wanted 7 turbines then reducing to 4. Classic way in which developers try to dupe the public. Why we need wind farms and nuclear power stations next to the river with the second largest tidal reach in the world is beyond me. As they say 'Nobody ever built a windmill who could build a watermill!'.
