Since the original public consultation in 2007, which led to the publication of the Nuclear White Paper in 2008, officials from my Department have made a series of visits to the Hinkley Point area to meet representatives of interested parties, including four visits in the last few months. We intend that these contacts should continue and have established a Strategic Development Forum to facilitate this.
