Horizon has completed its latest consultation on the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on Anglesey. But concerns have been raised about the proposed housing for construction workers on the project. More than 1,000 people across North Wales were updated on the proposals as part of the latest phase of consultation. As part of its application to build the power station – known as a development consent order – Horizon will submit a consultation report covering the issues reported at every stage of formal public consultation. The company revealed revised plans in May 2017, including a reduction in the area taken up by the main power station. The amount of workers’ accommodation was also reduced to a single temporary campus at the construction site. Concerns have been raised about the housing, with many workers expected to be based in holiday and private rented accommodation.
