Have your say at the next Horizon Open Surgery

Horizon Nuclear Power is inviting members of the public to come along to its next Open Surgery in Cemaes on Monday 19 November.

The drop in session, which takes place between 1pm and 7pm in Cemaes Village Hall, gives local people the opportunity to speak to members of the Horizon team and hear about the latest news on the Wylfa Newydd Project. 
 
Horizon has also just launched a consultation on three non-material changes to its Development Consent Order (DCO) Application.  A small team of technical experts will be present at the November Open Surgery to answer any questions about the consultation and the proposed changes.
 
Ifer Gwyn, Stakeholder Relations Manager at Horizon, said: “Since submitting our application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) in June, we’ve identified a need to amend three construction activities: worker shift patterns, working hours, and Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) movements.  We’ve uploaded the details onto our consultation website, so people can learn more about our proposals.
 
“We don’t expect the changes to create any new significant environmental effects from those presented in our DCO application, but we’re keen to hear what people think about our proposed changes.  It’s important that the community shares its views with us, so we’re asking local people to send us any feedback by 6 December.”
 
More information, including factsheets and detailed technical documents, about Horizon’s consultation on non-material changes can be found on the Horizon consultation website: www.horizonnuclearpower.com/consultation
