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!

Letter from Tim Proudler of Horizon Nuclear Power

As you may be aware a re consultation will be taking place by DECC which will last a further 14 weeks from the announcement of the new NPS by DECC. This will definitely be before the end of November.

Tim's letter below will only apply to the Shepperdine site if it is still included as a suitable site .

Either way we as SANE will continue to inform our community which includes distributing 5000 leaflets in October/November.

If you know anybody who wants to get involved with our campaign but has no access to a computer please give me a phone call or send me a letter.

We must be prepared!

Dear Reg,

Thanks for forwarding the extract of the OND meeting, which talks about the re-consultation of the Government’s Energy National Policy Statements. The extract confirms our understanding, which is that the revised documents will include some changes to take account of changes to the Appraisal of Sustainability and also some changes resulting from responses received by Government to the last NPS consultation. As this will be a Government consultation it will be carried out by them rather than project promoters. Therefore, and in answer to your question, Horizon has no obligation to consult further during this re-consultation.

However, we prefer to keep people up to date on our plans regardless of our formal obligations, which is why we recently held events to let people know what are thoughts are on the likely cooling tower design.

As you’ll be aware, project promoters like Horizon will be required to formally consult upon their site specific plans, before making their main planning application for a ‘Development Consent Order’ (DCO).

Hope this is helpful,



Tim Proudler
Planning & Consents Manager - Oldbury
