More work is needed to assess the impact a new £12bn nuclear power plant may have on public services in north Wales, Gwynedd Council has warned. The effect of Wylfa Newydd on transport, housing, the jobs market and schools in the region has not been “adequately examined”, officers claim. However, the council says the project, in neighbouring Anglesey, offers positive economic and social benefits. If approved, 9,000 construction workers could start arriving on site in 2020. On Tuesday Gwynedd’s ruling cabinet will be asked to approve the council’s response to the crucial Development Consent Order application, which is being discussed by the Planning Inspectorate for England and Wales.
