Views sought over nuclear build

A series of public events is planned to discuss plans for a new nuclear plant at Hinkley, Somerset.

Local residents will be give the opportunity to see current plans and to raise any concerns they have.

British Energy and EDF are arranging events as part of proposals to involve the local community in discussions about new nuclear power plants.

Events are planned at Nether Stowey, Cannington, Bridgwater, Combwich, Burnham-on-Sea, Williton and Stogursey.

British Energy began its public engagement process in April with a meeting at the Cannington Centre for Land-based Studies.

More than 100 people from the community came to voice their views.

Nigel Cann, station director at British Energy's Hinkley Point B station, said: "We are very keen to continue the conversation with our neighbours around Hinkley Point in advance of decisions on siting being made or any planning applications being submitted."
