Horizon Nuclear Power is seeking planning permission to carry out the 15 month long process that includes clearing field boundaries, demolishing buildings and “relocating species”, covering an area the equivalent of almost 500 football pitches. The plans, to be discussed by Anglesey Council’s planning committee next week, also include building car parks and offices at the site on the outskirts of Cemaes. Recommended for approval by officers, Horizon has endeavoured to begin the work even before the fate is known of the necessary Development Consent Order (DCO) application for the nuclear plant itself. A process that could take at least 18 months for the Planning Inspectorate to decide upon, the DCO will also include a substantial public consultation period.
