Wylfa Newydd / Decision On UK Nuclear Plant Put Back Until September

A planning decision for two UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactors at the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on the island of Anglesey in north Wales will be made in September 2020, almost a year later than expected, the UK government has confirmed.

The project was suspended in January 2019 after Hitachi failed to reach a funding deal with the UK government under Theresa May.

But in a move towards restarting the project, the government was expected to grant vital planning permission - known as a development consent order - to construct the two units, the cost of which has been put at £12bn.
