Horizon will hold its first Open Surgery of 2012 at Cemaes Village Hall on 23 January, at which local people can ask questions about the company’s plans for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa.
As with previous events, the January Open Surgery will give people the opportunity to meet the project team and find out more about the proposed new development.
The surgery will take place between 1pm and 7pm on 23 January at Cemaes Village Hall.
Alan Smith, Head of Site Development at Horizon Nuclear Power, said: “Our Open Surgeries proved increasingly popular in 2011 and we’re looking forward to the first one of 2012. If you have any questions about the project, or just want to know more about our
current activities, please come along and we’ll be happy to talk to you.”
Horizon will hold its next Open Surgery at Llangefni Communities First Centre on 20 February so local people can ask questions about the company’s plans for a new nuclear power station at Wylfa on Anglesey.
The Open Surgeries have been running since 2010 and give people the opportunity to meet the team involved with the project and find out more about the proposed new development.
The surgery will take place between 1pm and 7pm on 20 February at Llangefni Communities First Centre. No appointment is necessary.
Alan Smith, Head of Site Development at Horizon Nuclear Power, said: “We see these events as an important way for us to provide an update on our plans, so it’s encouraging to see so many people with an interest in the project attend our surgeries each month. We’re always happy to answer questions, so if you have any queries or want to know more about
our current activities, please come along.”
Horizon has today announced that it has completed the purchase of land which is key to the development of its proposed new nuclear power station near Oldbury-on-Severn in South Gloucestershire.
The land is being purchased by Horizon Nuclear Power Oldbury Limited from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), under terms agreed in the 2009 land auction.
Horizon is working towards a total development of around 6,000 MW of secure, affordable low carbon energy across its two sites – Oldbury and Wylfa on Anglesey in North Wales - which could mean thousands of jobs for UK workers.
Horizon Chief Operating Officer Alan Raymant commented:
"Completion of our land purchase at Oldbury is another important step for our project and means that we can look forward to developing a strong and successful project in South Gloucestershire. Wylfa is our lead site and, as we reach key milestones on the project over the coming months, we will be able to share more information on our approach for Oldbury."
