Case study - Hinkley Point C

What did we do

We have provided EDF Energy with community engagement support for Hinkley Point C since 2008. This included delivering consultation in support of the initial DCO application and managing communications locally through the construction process.

We designed and implemented a multi-stage consultation process covering the construction of two new nuclear reactors on the main site and associated developments, including accommodation, transport provision and new roads. This was the first consultation conducted on a DCO under the Planning Act 2008.

Our approach helped generate thousands of responses, which fed into an analysis of more than 10,000 issues as part of the consultation.
The DCO for Hinkley Point C was granted in 2013. We have worked with EDF Energy continuously through the subsequent construction process.
