Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station

Received 13 August 2018
From Ellen Menai Jones


My husband and myself are the farmers living in the farm immediately adjacent and surrounded by this proposed development. We graze 60+ sheep and Shetland Ponies on our farm.

My husband and I are very concerned at this proposed development:

The out of village sign that was erected on a very small and quiet junction, could have been placed in the centre of the village in order to alert villagers to the work proposed;

We have had no prior knowledge or communication from , or anyone else, about this work. The consultation shown as being in Llangefni on 27 May was not publicised in our village by poster or leaflet, and we were thus unaware of the development;

We only knew of the work when lorries arrived in an adjacent field and started unloading last week. This surprise was a great distress to my husband and myself;

We are worried that the planned work will have a negative effect on drainage and vegetation in our fields next to the site;

We are concerned about the way that problem of noise pollution, dust, and traffic movements seem to have been dismissed as being easy to manage and overcome. A reference to ‘daylight hours’ not inconveniencing residents, even in summer, does not fully explain why they were working on site until about 8pm in the first week of activity (w/b Monday 6 August);

We believe this development will have a detrimental effect upon our farm and livelihood, yet there is no mention of possible compensation in any documents we have seen;

The movement of thousands of lorry journeys to create the site and then move the spoil right past our front door, will have a huge impact on a small country lane and village, that is not in good condition at present;

At the very least, there should be a public meeting in Talwrn Village Hall to explain the size and scope of the work and the planned timescale of this preliminary and actual future work. This would enable local people to have their say on the proposal;

As a final point, the naming of the site is incorrect, and could cause offence to some local people. The correct names of the whole site are Cors Tyddyn Waen, Cors Ty Coch, and Cors Bron Haul. So, in future literature, please can you change the name?
