 Have your say on plans to abandon acoustic fish deterrents at Hinkley
Point C. A consultation period is set to end this week on proposals to
allow Hinkley Point C nuclear power station to drop a planning condition to
fit acoustic fish deterrents (AFDs) to its water intakes in the Bristol

Anti-nuclear campaigners claim 11 billion fish could be killed
during the power station’s lifetime if AFDs are not used. Stop Hinkley
says EDF, which is building the £27billion power plant, should not be
allowed to “wriggle out of conditions imposed when the project was given
planning permission.”

The Environment Agency, which has been considering
an application from EDF to amend Hinkley’s water discharge activity, says
it was proposing to remove the requirement for AFDs. But before the
proposal could be confirmed it is holding a second public consultation
which runs until Thursday May 25th, 2023. 21st May 2023
