Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 27 July 2018
From Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions UK Ltd on behalf of North Anglesey Council's Partnership

Representation

The North Anglesey Council’s Partnership (NACP) is a partnership of local Community Councils who are interested in the effects of the Wylfa Newydd proposals on a range of issues which would affect all of the Community Council areas. In addition, some of the Community Councils may also be pursuing interests in topics that are particular to them, rather than the whole NACP area. The relevant Community Councils will be registering independently to make representations on these issues.
The subjects that NACP wish to make representations on are:
1. Impact on Welsh language and culture from the large number of non Welsh speaking workers and their families from outside of the area.
2. Effects on the highway network and its users from:
a. The number and types of vehicles using the highway network.
b. Minor, local roads being used as shortcuts.
c. Uncontrolled car parking in the locality.
3. For local workers and contractors to be prioritised in order to maximise the benefits achieved in the local area.
4. Concern over long construction working hours of workers and the implications on productivity and subsequent delays to construction, impact upon worker health and an increase in accidents both in the workplace and during travel to/from work.
5. The impact from the temporary construction workers accommodation due to
a. The plan to accommodate a large number of temporary workers on a single site adjacent to small villages, and the impact on local communities and services.
b. The missed opportunity to provide legacy benefits resulting from the single campus site proposals, and from not promoting Rhosgoch as an additional site.
c. The reduction in availability of local rented and tourist accommodation.
6. The disturbance to local residents from the construction activities, in particular from vibration, dust/air quality, noise and light pollution issues.
7. The effect on tourism, the Welsh Coast Path and public rights of way in the area from construction and traffic impacts.
