EDF are currently constructing the new UK nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point although other plans by rival operators for plants at Wylfa in Wales and at Sellafield appears to be on hold at present.

The Celtic League opposes new build nuclear plants and adopted a resolution to this effect at its AGM in Brittany in 2006. The League also has questioned the safety case for service life extension of older plants such as Heysham and Hunterston.
