Nuclear team meeting music fans
Oldbury Power Station
Oldbury Power Station is set to close by 2008
Music fans are being asked to give their views on the future of a nuclear power station which is due to be decommissioned.

Staff from Oldbury power station were at the Coleford Music Festival in the Forest of Dean to talk to visitors about what could happen to the site.

It is part of a public consultation effort which began earlier this year.

The South Gloucestershire installation is due to stop generating electricity at the end of 2008.

Environmental statement

Festival visitors were given the chance to look at an "environmental statement" outlining proposals for dismantling the plant, expected traffic movements and efforts for protecting wildlife.

Project manager Jon Bishton said: "Publishing our environmental statement is a major milestone for the station and a huge step forwards in the decommissioning process.

"We hope people will take the opportunity to visit us in Coleford to find out more about what is included in this important document."

More than 1,000 residents who responded to an earlier survey said they wanted the site left to nature and not developed.
