Wylfa Newydd Housing Study

The Wylfa Newydd Housing Study (Stage 1), commissioned by the Isle of Anglesey County Council and undertaken by CCHPR, reviewed Horizon Nuclear Power’s Construction Worker Accommodation Strategy. It identified the key issues and impacts of the proposed development, and outlined the measures required to alleviate impacts, on the local housing market. The purpose of the second stage of the study is to further define and justify the mitigation measures required, and to provide the required evidence, to underpin the ‘Housing Fund’ in the s106 Agreement in order to ensure that the Isle of Anglesey County Council has a robust and credible evidence base leading into the Development Consent Order (DCO) investigation.

Housing and construction workers' accommodation is one of the most important topics in the DCO Examination, beyond the main site. Where workers will live will determine where the impacts will be felt across each of the other topics (e,g, Welsh language, tourism, traffic, etc.).

Given the importance of this topic and its cross cutting nature, identifying, assessing and mitigating these impacts is of critical importance to the Isle of Angelsey County Council (IACC). The aim of IACC is to seek a viable solution to housing the incoming construction workforce, one that enables the local housing market, and the local tourism economy, to continue to function normally throughout the construction period, with as little disruption as is practicable.
