Concern raised by Kilkenny County Council over proximity to Hinkley Point nuclear power plant

Kilkenny People 23rd April 2018, Kilkenny County Council’s ‘concern’ over Hinkley Point nuclear power
expansion. Local councillors last week agreed to write a ‘statement of
concern’ regarding the expansion of the nuclear power plant at Hinkley
Point in Somerset, England.

Cllr Malcolm Noonan and Tomas Breathnach raised
the matter at the monthly meeting of Kilkenny County Council. Cllr Noonan
noted that Tuesday was the cut-off for submissions, in what he described as
a ‘very limited’ consultation process.

He requested members write a statement of concern. Cllr Tomas Breathnach said that the power station is
located 250km from the south-east of Ireland, and that the consultation
process now in place was not there during the initial planning process in 2013.
