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!

Steve Webb MP for Yate and Thornbury confirms Oldbury is still on the list!

We have had an email from Steve Webb MP stating that after speaking to Charles Hendry, Minister of State for DECC, he can cofirm that the Shepperdine site is still deemed as suitable and is still on the revised list of eight sites.

Steve confirms that he is disappointed at the decision!

We are preparing to educate even more of our community about the unsuitability of this site for such a large development.

There are 5,000 leaflets being hand delivered to households in The Severn Vale and The Forest of Dean and it is likely that due to demand we will up the distribution to 10,000 in the next month.

We are pleased that DECC are giving us the opportunity to reconsult with our community and we are sure that our community are doing a far better job at this than DECC who popped down to Thornbury for three days in February and the E-on/RWE consortium who are the developers and therefore not interested in objective consultation.

As a community we must be prepared to work hard to show all concerned that Shepperdine is not viable to ourselves or the electricity consumers in the UK.

We are what Mr Cameron wants in The Big Society---people who care deeply for our community and fund all of our objective campaigning ourselves through time, money,and you could say metaphorically through blood, sweat and tears!

Thanks for your continued support


  1. Starting to look more like a done deal - behind closed doors. Part of the Lib / Con coalition bargaining.

  2. Steve Webb is going to have to stand up and be counted.

  3. Steve is one of the good guys... it's Huhne that I don't trust.
