Between 24 May and 22 June 2017 we shared our updated proposals for Wylfa Newydd.

While many of our proposals remain as we set out at Stage Two, we made some changes to the power station layout to make it more compact. As a result, we streamlined our construction schedule and reduced construction worker numbers.

We also updated other elements of the Project proposals, such as the location of our off-site facilities.

We made a number of changes, including:

  • reducing the number of locations of temporary workers’ accommodation from seven to a single Site Campus
  • refining our parking and travel plans for all our workers during construction
  • reducing the number of development sites and combining our essential off-site facilities together on one site at Llanfaethlu.

What’s stayed the same?

  • improvements to the A5025
  • the location for a park and ride at Dalar Hir
  • the location for a logistics centre at Parc Cybi
  • our commitment to Welsh language and culture
  • our commitment to providing community benefits that help deliver a positive legacy.

You can find more information in our ‘Consultation Overview Document’ that summarises our Project, including the updates we’ve made. You can read this on our documents page.

Using our 3D virtual model we also produced a number of indicative video flythroughs to illustrate what different aspects of the Project could look like. To view these, visit our videos page.

We also provided a summary of the Stage Three consultation website in British Sign Language (BSL) for the hard of hearing, including instructions on how to submit feedback. You can view this 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. We are proposing to be part of the community for the next 100 years, so it’s only right that we listen to your views and take them into account, before we submit our application to build Wylfa Newydd later this year.

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 our second stage of pre-application consultation in 2016. We’ve also held a number of other consultations and engagement events to keep people up-to-date.
