PLAN­NING

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

THE com­pany is pre­par­ing the De­vel­op­ment Con­sent Or­der (DCO) ap­pli­ca­tion, the plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion to build Wylfa Newydd, which will be sub­mit­ted to the Plan­ning In­spec­torate in the first quar­ter of 2018.

Two plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions are also about to be sub­mit­ted to An­gle­sey County Coun­cil. One ap­pli­ca­tion is for ap­proval to im­prove the ex­ist­ing A5025 be­tween Val­ley and the Wylfa Newydd De­vel­op­ment Area, called the “on-line im­prove­ments”.

The pro­posed by­passes along the route will not be a part of this plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion, and will be part of the DCO ap­pli­ca­tion.

They will be con­structed fol­low­ing Fi­nal In­vest­ment De­ci­sion – called the ‘off-line im­prove­ments’.

Sub­ject to plan­ning ap­proval, work is sched­uled to com­mence in the sec­ond half of 2018.

The sec­ond plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion is for pre­par­ing and clear­ing the main Wylfa Newydd site ahead of con­struc­tion.

This work, all tak­ing place within Hori­zon-owned land, will en­com­pass clear­ing trees, hedgerows, bound­ary walls, translo­ca­tion of species, de­mo­li­tion of re­main­ing struc­tures etc. This work, sub­ject to plan­ning ap­proval, is ex­pected to mo­bilise dur­ing Fe­bru­ary 2018.
