AN energy company has vowed to listen carefully to the community before drawing up proposals for a new power station at Bradwell. It was announced on Tuesday that the Government had asked nuclear regulators process of approving a Chinese-designed reactor for a new power plant. The China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) and EDF Energy submitted a joint application to the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in October last year. The Government has now asked nuclear regulators to begin the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) on the Chinese HPR1000 reactor known as Bradwell B. Miriam Lewis, leader of Maldon District Council, has praised the latest announcement. She said: “We welcome the news that the Government has confirmed that the Generic Design Assessment for the HPR1000 can begin for Bradwell. “In September 2016, the Secretary of State confirmed Government’s decision to proceed with Hinkley Point C, as part of a three-project deal including Sizewell and Bradwell. “Since then, we have been eagerly awaiting the start date for the GDA process to take us a step closer to major investment in the Maldon District, bringing good quality employment, training opportunities for our young people and prosperity into the future.”
