Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 06 July 2018
From Arthur Wyn Owen


The proposal now includes on-site worker accommodation for upto 4,000 workers. This will have a detrimental impact on the surrounding area both from an environmental and community point of view. This is contrary to the local Development Plan policies which aim to steer housing to the main settlements. The LPA have already considered and approved a worker campus development at Holyhead and as such this is available and should be used to accommodate a large section of the nuclear workforce.

The on-site campus is located close to a SSSI which will be lost. No amount of off-site mitigation can compensate for this unnecessary loss due to the availability of other approved worker accommodation sites.
