Anglesey council has said it has “serious concerns” about “significant weaknesses” in plans for a nuclear plant on the island. It wants Horizon Nuclear Power, the company behind Wylfa Newydd, to guarantee “as close as possible to 100%” of jobs will go to local people. Council leader Ieuan Williams said the authority’s support “cannot be taken for granted”.

Plans to build a camp for 800 nuclear plant workers in one of Anglesey’s biggest towns should be scrapped, say worried locals. Horizon Nuclear Power, the developers of the proposed Wylfa Newydd plant, are looking at building temporary accommodation to house hundreds of workers on land adjacent to Madyn Farm in Amlwch. Strong opposition has been expressed by some locals, who fear the town of 4,000 people would be unable to cope with the influx of people. Horizon is also looking at building 50 permanent houses at Madyn Farm to house between 150 and 200 workers, which would then be turned into general housing.
