The plan to build the new Hinkley Point C nuclear plant took an unexpected turn yesterday when the British Government decided to delay its decision to proceed with the project until the early autumn.
With a new Prime Minister in government and the Brexit decision is this really a surprise? With an expected project price tag of an estimated £18bn (with some estimates putting it at £32bn) Theresa May wants to be absolutely sure that as one of the most expensive projects on earth it is right.
Though the super-project has suffered a delay, the site at Hinkley Point is undergoing the transformation needed to prepare the site. It is estimated that the project will provide around 25,000 jobs in its build phase and will leave behind permanent employment for an estimated 900 people. The local economy and the wider business community will benefit from this.
