FURTHER informal drop-in sessions will be held by Horizon Nuclear Power in Oldbury and Thornbury.

Just as last June’s meetings, they will offer locals the opportunity to ask questions and bring up any issue they may have with the proposal to build a new nuclear plant in Oldbury.

The sessions will take place on Monday, October 17 at Oldbury Memorial Hall and on Tuesday 18 at The Cossham Hall in Thornbury, both from 3.30pm to 8.30pm.

Planning and consents manager for Horizon Tim Proudler said: "Over 40 people attended the sessions we held in June and we valued the opportunity to answer their questions and clarify our position on a number of key issues, such as our preference for lower hybrid cooling towers.

"As our project develops we will hold further exhibitions on our proposals.

"In the meantime we wanted to supplement this activity with something more informal.

"These regular drop-ins help to ensure that residents are kept up to speed with our thinking."
