    Consultation

Introduction

Horizon Nuclear Power are planning to build the Wylfa Newydd Power Station next to the existing Wylfa A plant on the Isle of Anglesey. Under the Planning Act, this project is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). Horizon are carrying out a comprehensive consultation programme to give local people an opportunity to have their say on the proposals for the construction and operation of the Power Station before they are submitted to the Planning Inspectorate. Traverse (under our previous name, Dialogue by Design) was commissioned by Horizon Nuclear power to analyse, manage and deliver the feedback to the initial consultation beginning in 2014, as well as a subsequent informal consultation resulting from a project update in 2016

Methodology

Dialogue by Design provided an online portal for respondents to submit their responses to the consultation. This included providing a bi-lingual website capable of changing seamlessly between English and Welsh and thereby allowing respondents to view the project documentation and respond in the language they feel most comfortable with. Responses were also received by post and email and at consultation events, again in both English and Welsh. Utilising our proven project management methods and bi-lingual staff we were able to ensure that both consultations were fully bilingual.

We received, processed and analysed a total of 424 responses to the first phase of the consultation, including extensive representations from stakeholders. We submitted the Stage One report in February 2015. Following this, we went on to deliver a subsequent consultation programme.

Impact

Our extensive and detailed report has allowed Horizon to incorporate the views of the public in aspects of their design. Effective communication between DbyD and Horizon has identified specific areas where further consultation is needed in order to allow Horizon to keep to their planned schedule in the NSIP process.
