Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station
Has the Inspectorate, at any time to date, advised the Developer to consider any potential for transboundary impacts of the Developers’ proposal for the construction and operation of a new nuclear power station (Wylfa Newydd) on Anglesey? Please identify as well justification and reasoning.
I can confirm that the Planning Inspectorate has discussed transboundary impacts with Horizon Nuclear Power on a number of occasions. In particular, please see the note of a meeting held specifically to discuss their approach to transboundary consultation, which is available here: attachment 1.
I have also provided below a number of links to further meeting notes where transboundary issues have been discussed.
• attachment 2
• attachment 3
• attachment 4
• attachment 5
• attachment 6

In addition to meetings, transboundary impacts are considered within the EIA Scoping Opinion’s produced by the Planning Inspectorate on behalf of the Secretary of State. These are available on our website at the following links:
• April 2016 attachment 9
• June 2017 attachment 10 .
