star this property answer text <p>Any application for development consent for the proposed Sizewell C nuclear generating station will need to consider the potential impacts of the proposal and any mitigations that might be put forward by the developer to address or minimise those impacts to an acceptable level. The question of the appropriateness and acceptability in planning terms of any proposed mitigations will be tested during a public examination conducted by the Planning Inspectorate which will submit a report of its findings to my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State.</p><p> </p><p>In taking the decision on whether development consent should be granted for the project, the Secretary of State will follow the relevant requirements in the Planning Act 2008 and have regard to any matters which are important and relevant. In the event that consent was granted, any mitigation which the Secretary of State considered necessary before construction started would be included as a requirement in the development consent order.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Following GKN’s notification to employees on 4 April about their intention to undertake a phased closure of their Kings Norton site in Birmingham by 2021, the Secretary of State spoke to Hans Buthker (CEO of GKN Aerospace) on 7 April. He explained that this proposal was the result of an internal strategic review by GKN to help the company secure long-term sustainability that will better position it for future growth.</p><p> </p><p>Mr Buthker stressed GKN’s continued commitment to the UK, evidenced by the significant new investment the company is making including, as part of this proposal, at Luton and Portsmouth and in a Global Technology R&amp;D Centre at Filton. This comes on top of GKN’s further announcement last week for £300 million in new investment to ramp up its activities in the fast-growing electric vehicle market.</p><p> </p><p>This is a commercial decision for GKN Aerospace and not in contravention of the deed of covenant agreed between BEIS and Melrose. GKN Aerospace have confirmed the site will remain operational in a phased capacity until 2021, and all affected employees will be supported in seeking new employment within and outside of GKN Aerospace. GKN Aerospace announced they will be increasing overall investment in its other UK sites, with Luton and Portsmouth becoming technology centres of excellence. GKN Aerospace invested record levels into R&amp;D in 2018, including a new world-class Global Technology Centre opening in Bristol in 2020, hosting 300 highly skilled engineers.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We appreciate this will be an unsettling time for the 172 employees at Kings Norton and will work closely with the company, and local partners, to make sure that they are supported throughout.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All nuclear new build projects are assessed on a case by case basis to ensure they provide value for money for taxpayers and consumers. Before a new nuclear power station can be built and operated, the operator must apply for and obtain a number of permissions from the independent regulators and from Government. The assessment of environmental impact is an important consideration in regulators deciding whether relevant permissions should be issued and what conditions should be attached to the permissions. In addition, potential new nuclear technologies are considered under the Justification Regulations, with ‘Justification’ being the process by which Government determines whether the potential benefits of a practice making use of ionising radiation outweigh its potential risks. Furthermore, all developers of new build stations are required to have a Funded Decommissioning Programme approved by the Secretary of State before nuclear-related construction can begin. This ensures the taxpayer does not bear the burden for future costs of turning the station into a greenfield site once generation has ceased.</p><p> </p>
