Welcome to NuGen’s consultation website

NuGen, a UK nuclear company, is a joint venture between Toshiba and ENGIE (formerly GDF SUEZ). NuGen is currently developing its proposals for the Moorside Project, which includes the construction and operation of a new nuclear power station on land in West Cumbria, North West England.

The Moorside Project is a nationally significant infrastructure project and must be consented through the Planning Act 2008 via a ‘Development Consent Order’ (DCO). Before a DCO can be made, NuGen is required to consult with those living in the vicinity of the land to which its proposed application relates, key local authorities, persons with an interest in the land and prescribed statutory bodies, as well as publicising its proposed application nationally.

NuGen’s consultation process involves two stages:

  • Stage One: Strategic Issues Consultation, which was carried out from 16th May 2015 to 25th July 2015.
  • Stage Two: Proposed Scheme Consultation which will run from 14th May 2016 to 30th July 2016.

NuGen has published a ‘Statement of Community Consultation’ (SoCC) which sets out how NuGen will carry out the Stage Two Consultation and consult with people in the vicinity of the development.
