Fears have been voiced that the next stage of consultation on the proposed nuclear power plant may not now take place until the autumn. The setback is due to concerns expressed by unions in France over EDF Energy’s bid to build an £18billion reactor at Hinkley Point – with the unions now to be formally consulted over the project and its financing. EDF has consistently said Sizewell C cannot move forward until a final investment decision is made on the Somerset power plant. It was hoped this would happen in May but now it looks likely that a 60-day consultation with unions will be necessary.
