This launch event will be a site visit to Hinkley Point C.

Power StationHinkley Point C, on the Somerset coast, is the site of the first nuclear power station to be built in the UK for more than 20 years. This event will take attendees on a bus site tour of the biggest construction project in Europe, stretching across 430 acres and include a light lunch and refreshments. Planners from EDF Energy, Sedgemoor District Council and the Environment Agency will also be presenting on their role and experiences on the project.  This will provide a useful CPD opportunity for Young Planners to find out more about this Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project.
