Tidal Lagoon Between Newport and Cardiff

The Planning Inspectorate has been notified that the developers of the Tidal Lagoon Swansea project intend to make a new application for a new tidal lagoon at Cardiff.  The site between 2km east of Cardiff Bay and 2 km west of the mouth of the Usk, extending to the middle of the Severn estuary, is currently being examined in further detail and an initial meeting has been held with the Planning Inspectorate.  The project is pre-application and the developer’s focus is currently on environmental and engineering feasibility and local community opinion.  Further details will become available later in the year.
