If you are ever invited on to a discussion for BBC Somerset Radio here's a handy tip. When you get a chance to ask your questions, bung all you want to get across in the first one. You won't get a chance to ask a second.
We had Richard Mason on the Matt Faulkner show this morning, and he invited contributions from ourselves, as well as Cannington and Bridgwater representatives - prior to the EDF launch of their plans and the start of their consultation process.
Without seeing the plans - not out till tomorrow - I can state that there will be no building of accommodation blocks in Williton or Cannington. Bridgwater will get the lot. There will be a reduced size, temporary, Park and Ride to the West of Williton, although they didn't state exactly where. We shall find out shortly.
I didn't get a chance to ask why the West of Williton - and in view of the Bridgwater representatives statement that Bridgwater will be even more 'grodlocked' with the current proposals, I am concerned that we shall now get Taunton workers making their way to the A39 via Williton instead of via the M5 - hence up the A358, and past Bellamy's corner on the way to the Park and Ride, and through Williton again on the buses. Doubling the problem!
Not to worry - yet! We have a chance to make our views known to EDF when they start their consultation process - the first on July the 17th at Danesfield School, between 10am and 4pm, and the second when, (we hope) they will come to our Extraordinary Parish Council Meeting on the 2nd of August at 6.45pm at Danesfield School again. Same procedures apply for this - you ahve to submit your questions beforehand and have limited time to speak, to give more people a chance - but at least, this time, we have some more concrete proposals (not intending to be a pun!) , and are able to formulate some appropriate response.
More details, and links to the documents released by EDF - and also to documents supporting our arguments put forward to EDF by ourselves and other Parishes - will be posted within the next day or so.
