Clearance work for a new £12bn nuclear power station has been halted over fears about the effect it will have on wildlife at a nature reserve. The Welsh Government have called in plans to prepare a 740-acre area in Anglesey ready to build Wylfa Newydd. Anglesey council had approved developer Horizon‘s 15-month clearance project but wildlife groups had “significant” concerns about the work‘s impact. Horizon said it was “disappointed” and “disagreed with the reasoning”. Groups including the National Trust, RSPB Cymru and the North Wales Wildlife Trust had issues with the effect the work would have on a nearby area of outstanding natural beauty.
