IT is one year since the contracts were signed for the new nuclear power plant at Hinkley C, so what has been happening at the site in that time? Construction is fully underway and here is some of the progress that has been made on one of Europe’s largest construction sites: • 2,000 workers are on site every day, 65,000 meals every month needed to feed the growing workforce. • 1,500 bed “Campus” accommodation for workers under construction with 500 beds on the site and 1,000 in Bridgwater – supplied by Newark-based Caledonian Modular .

Petition “We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to direct Natural Resources Wales to suspend the licence it has granted to NNB Genco, which permits up to 300,000 tonnes of radioactively contaminated material, dredged from the seabed at the Hinkley Point Nuclear power station site, to be dumped into Welsh inshore waters. We further request that the suspension of the licence is used to ensure that a full Environmental Impact Assessment, complete radiological analysis and core sampling are carried out under the auspices of Natural Resources Wales, and that a Public Inquiry, a full hearing of independent evidence and a Public Consultation take place before any dump of the Hinkley sediments is permitted.”
