Meet the Horizon team at the next Open Surgery on 16 July

Come and meet the Horizon Nuclear Power team at the next Open Surgery on Monday 16 July to hear more about the latest updates on the Wylfa Newydd Project.

Local people are invited to come along to the monthly drop-in event, which is held from 1pm to 7pm at Cemaes Village Hall. The session is open to everyone and gives visitors the opportunity to ask the Horizon team questions about the Wylfa Newydd Project.
 
Richard Foxhall, Horizon’s Communication and Stakeholder Relations Manager said: “June marked a significant milestone for the Project with the confirmation that our planning application to build Wylfa Newydd, called a Development Consent Order (DCO) application, had been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate. This will set in motion the next phase of activity, and the Inspectorate will publish details of the full process shortly.
 
“Ahead of that, Natural Resources Wales (NRW) will carry out a 10-week public consultation on four key environmental applications we’ve submitted to them. These are applications for a Marine Licence, an Operational Combustion permit, and Operational Water Discharge permit and a Construction Water Discharge permit. NRW’s consultation events will be held on 16 July (Bangor), 17 July (Cemaes) and 18 July (Llangefni).
 
“There’s a lot happening on the project right now, so we encourage anyone who has any questions or who would like any further information to come along and meet the team.”
