A leading campaign group against a new nuclear site have been left furious after their comments were not included in a report ahead of a planning meeting this evening. Work to start building a new nuclear power station in Bradwell is set to take a giant leap forward. For years a second plant has been discussed but tonight permission is sought to begin work on the new site. The application is for permission to do groundwork, the first piece in the jigsaw of a new plant actually being built. However just two days before the meeting campaign groups claimed their objections to the project are being ignored and have been deliberately left off the information being presented to councillors who will make the decision. If approved work will begin to make sure the ground is suitable for a new plant. The application has been recommended for approval by Maldon District Council’s planning department. The work will include digging sampling holes and carry out soil testing.
