Planning advises rejected Wylfa as unsuitable for nuclear development. No wonder Boris Johnson wants to ”cut red tape”

I would argue that we do not need new nuclear power at all. It is
costly, dangerous, slow and unsuitable as an adjunct to renewables. We
certainly don’t need it in Wales. In 2021, planning inspectors advised
that the Wylfa Newydd development (What might the UK energy strategy
contain and how feasible are options? 6 April) should be rejected due to
its impact on the local economy, housing stock, local ecology, nature
conservation and the Welsh language.

Yet still politicians say it’s the best place for a new nuclear power station. No wonder Boris Johnson wantsto cut the “red tape” of the planning process. He cannot be allowed to.
