As part of our pre-application consultation we have established a Community Forum to provide a mechanism for regular discussion between EDF Energy and representatives of the local community on the new nuclear build project at Hinkley Point C. This is in addition to the Site Stakeholder Group, a long-standing body that considers all matters relating to the Hinkley Point A and B stations.
Members of the Community Forum discuss and advise EDF Energy on key issues affecting the local community and work with us to minimise the impacts and maximise the benefits of new nuclear build to those living in the area.
The first Community Forum took place on 30 September 2009, was attended by 35 representatives from local groups and organisations with a broad range of interests including: local councillors; Bridgwater College; the Environment Agency; Bridgwater Bay Wildfowl Association; Somerset Trust Badger Group; Stop Hinkley; West Hinkley Action Group; National Farmers Union; and RAC Foundation.
Since then the Community Forum has continued to meet quarterly, with more than 75 groups represented.
At the inaugural meeting, terms of reference for the Community Forum were agreed. These included: to agree key issues for discussion in future meetings and to gain a better understanding of the planning process for new nuclear build. Minutes of the meetings can be found below.
The Community Forum is expected to meet regularly during key stages of the development. It will meet throughout the planning process and, if the application is successful, through the construction and operation of the new power station.
If you represent a local group or organisation and would be interested in joining the Community Forum, please contact us on 0800 169 6507. The next Community Forum meeting is scheduled for Thursday 18 April 2013.
