Britain’s Planning Inspectorate has accepted Hitachi unit Horizon’s application for the Wylfa nuclear power station in Wales, it said, one of several new plants aimed at replacing the UK’s ageing fleet of atomic reactors and coal plants. “We have considered very carefully the application submitted by Horizon Nuclear Power and decided that it meets the required tests set out in the legislation to be accepted for examination,” Sarah Richards, chief executive of the Planning Inspectorate, said in a statement. “Of course, this does not mean that consent will be given for the project to go ahead – acceptance of the application simply means that the Examining Authority can begin to make arrangements for the formal examination of the application,” she added.
