Nuclear Power station sites identified

The revised draft Nuclear National Policy Statement has found the following sites potentially suitable for the deployment of new nuclear power stations by 2025:

Bradwell, Essex; Hartlepool, Borough of Hartlepool; Heysham, Lancashire; Hinkley Point, Somerset; Oldbury, South Glos.; Sellafield, Cumbria; Sizewell, Suffolk; Wylfa, Isle of Anglesey.

The Government Response to Consultation on the draft Energy NPSs, published alongside the new NPSs, confirms that the Government has found that Dungeness in Kent is not suitable for deployment by 2025, due to concerns over the impact of a potential station on important habitat sites. It also sets out that Braystones and Kirksanton in Cumbria have been found to be not suitable for the deployment of new nuclear power stations by 2025, due to concerns over whether they were credible for deployment by 2025 and the potential impact that they could have on the Lake District National Park.
