DCO application update

Wylfa Newydd Development Consent Order (DCO) application update

In June 2018, we submitted our DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate for permission to build and operate Wylfa Newydd, a new nuclear power station on Anglesey.

In August 2018, we made some refinements to aspects of these proposals and we asked people what they thought.

We proposed changes the upper daily limit of vessel movements to and from the Marine Off-Loading Facility (MOLF) at key periods. This would allow for the recovery of any programme delays caused by, for example, tides, weather, varying load sizes or dockside closures, ensuring the MOLF is used most effectively throughout construction.

We also proposed to amend the existing blasting schedule that will be needed to help level the site for construction, excavation and to remove redundant buried features, which will minimise any potential delays to the wider Project programme.

While this consultation is now closed, you can read more in the information sheets and technical reports available to download below. Thank you to everyone who visited our events and gave us their feedback.
