The possible design of a nuclear power station planned near Bristol has been revealed as part of consultation for the scheme. The Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales, working with the Office for Nuclear Regulation, are consulting on their assessment of a new nuclear power station design from Hitachi-GE. This process helps ensure that any new nuclear power stations built in the UK meet high standards of safety, security, environmental protection and waste management.
