Transboundary Environmental Public Consultation - Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Plant, Anglesey, North Wales, UK

Why is this consultation being undertaken?

Under the terms of the 1991 United Nations Convention on environmental impact in a transboundary context (the Espoo Convention), and the EU Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment (the EIA Directive), Member States are required to engage in transboundary public consultation in respect of projects likely to have significant effects on the environment of neighbouring States as part of the environmental impact assessment of a proposed development. For this purpose, the Member State in whose territory the project is intended to be carried out is required to send to the affected State, no later than when informing its own public, a description of the project and any available information on its possible transboundary impact.
