Wicklow County Council To Raise Concerns Over Nuclear Power Station In Wales

Wicklow County Council is submitting a number of concerns with British authorities about plans to develop a new nuclear power station on Anglesey in Wales

The plant is located about 100 kilometres from the east coast of Ireland.

Earlier this month, a Japanese newspaper reported that Hitachi might suspend all plans for the project, because negotiations with the British government had hit an "impasse".

Some people say it’s a rehash of concerns from the 70’s and 80’s about Sellafield, which came to nothing.
