Between 31 August and 25 October 2016 we shared our latest proposals for the Wylfa Newydd Project. We held exhibitions across Anglesey and North Wales so local people could see our latest plans, talk to our team and give us their feedback. We would like to thank everyone who came along to our events or sent us their feedback.

What did we ask for people's views on?

We asked for people's views on our proposals for all aspects of the Wylfa Newydd Project, including:
  • our preferred sites for Temporary Workers’ Accommodation, including on the Power Station Site, and our approach to housing our workers
  • the layout, appearance and landscaping of the other facilities that we need on Anglesey to build and operate Wylfa Newydd safely and efficiently. These are called Associated Development and Off-Site Power Station Facilities and include Temporary Workers’ Accommodation, a park and ride facility and logistics centre
  • the effects of the Project on the environment. Our Preliminary Environmental Information Report provides our current understanding of this
  • mounding and landscaping proposals within the Wylfa Newydd Development Area, as part of our Landscape and Environmental Masterplan (LEMP)
  • bus routes and stops for home-based workers
  • how we can encourage local people to take advantage of the jobs and skills opportunities available
  • additional assessments that we’re undertaking to understand the effects of the Project on topics such as the Welsh Language and culture, health and well-being, and equality issues
If you would like a summary of all of these, we’d recommend reading our ‘Consultation Overview Document’ in our document library.

Voluntary consultations

Alongside our Stage Two pre-application consultation, we’d also like your views on two voluntary plans which we have developed. These relate to local noise mitigation and community benefits.

Consultation on these also closed on 25 October.

You can find more information on these here.

Why is consultation important?

Consulting with local communities helps us to shape and refine our plans, and is an important part of the planning process. The Planning Act 2008 requires us to consult widely with the community, and organisations such as Isle of Anglesey County Council, before we submit our application for a Development Consent Order in 2017. 

We have set out our commitment to consult local communities in a Statement of Community Consultation.

We held the first stage of our pre-application consultation in 2014 and since then we’ve held a number of other consultations to keep people up-to-date.
