National Grid public events launch

  • National Grid launches events programme across Anglesey and Gwynedd
  • Virtual reality head-sets and 3D computer model show what the second connection could look like
  • Have your say before consultation closes on 16 December 2016 

National Grid is encouraging people to come and meet its team and find out more about its proposals to connect Wylfa Newydd as it launches a series of community events across Anglesey and North Gwynedd. 

At the events there will be a whole range of ways people can see what the connection could look like through the use of virtual reality head-sets and a 3D computer model. This will allow users to search by postcode and see specific sections of the route from their address. 

National Grid is running a three week programme of 19 events in towns and villages from 28 October to 15 November 2016. Its team will be on hand to answer questions to help local people better understand the proposals and provide feedback.

The company recently announced detailed plans for a new connection made of pylons and a tunnel at the Menai Strait – an essential part of bringing forward the investment in the new nuclear power station. It is holding its final route-wide consultation on the new connection so local people can have their say ahead of a planning application to the government in 2017. 

Gareth Williams, Senior Project Manager, said: 

“This is likely to be our last consultation on the whole connection so it’s really important people have a chance to come and talk to us and give us as much detailed feedback as they can. 

“We’re holding events in community halls across Anglesey and North Gwynedd and we hope lots of people can attend. We’re also taking our consultation vehicle out and about and will have pop-up stands at key locations - we want to give people the best chance to come and ask us questions as they go about their day.”
