Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 06 July 2018
From Dr Jonathan F Dean


I have concerns about the proposed development for the following reasons:

1 - cumulative impact of power station and pylon line on the environment

2 - grid connection not acceptable to the people of Anglesey

3 - the power station and grid connection should be a single programme not two projects

4 - no “cumulative consultation” for the power station and grid connection

5 - impact of cooling water outflow on the marine environment

6 - construction and operation of the MOF rather than using Holyhead harbour

7 - the CHP feasibility study has not fully explored new agricultural developments and has minimal audit trail

8 - NPS EN-6 assumes private finance and implementation by 2025

9 - NPS EN-6 did not consider the grid connection

10 - it’s in the wrong place!
