Dilemma over plan to dump Himkley nuclear mud off Cardiff coast

Nation Cymru 15th March 2021,  Proposals to dump hundreds of thousands of tonnes more mud from theconstruction of a new nuclear power plant two miles off the Cardiff coast
will be discussed in the Senedd tomorrow. Last year a petition opposing EDF
Energy’s application demanded a full Environmental Impact Assessment
(EIA) before the dump could be licensed. The petition gained almost 10,700
signatures and forced a Senedd debate. In 2018 EDF were granted permission
to dump at the Cardiff Deep Grounds inshore disposal site despite fierce
opposition and an earlier debate in the Senedd.
