Stop Hinkley Campaign Presents Petition to Government Against EDF’s Nuclear Plans

The Stop Hinkley campaign is to present a petition with more than 12,750 signatories to the government department responsible for the UK’s policy on nuclear power. The petition shows the strength of opposition to plans by energy company Electricite de France to build the UK’s largest ever nuclear power station at Hinkley Point on the Somerset coast.

Most of those who have signed come from the county of Somerset, where the new plant would be sited. EdF has submitted an application for construction to the Infrastructure Planning Commission.
