HUNDREDS more temporary beds may be needed over the next three years to house workers during the constructions of the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station. Sedgemoor District Council highlighted the need for temporary accommodation in the district in 2017, to prevent the influx of Hinkley construction workers from putting pressure on the private housing market. In the two years since it has granted permission for more than 1,000 temporary beds, of which more than half have been successfully taken up. But with the construction workforce yet to reach its peak, more beds will be needed up to 2022 to ensure temporary workers have enough places to stay while building the new facility.
