A planning application by EdF to dig some twenty trenches close to the village of Shurton has been turned down by West Somerset District Council.
Permission for the trenches was requested by EdF in order to ascertain the nature and depth of the soil above rock in an area as close as 100 metres from nearby houses in Shurton. The planning committee threw out the application saying that there was no justification for so many trenches especially so near to the village. They were puzzled by the request for trenches so far away from the main part of the proposed nuclear power station and EdF did not send a representative to the planning meeting to offer any further details.
