South Hook power station plans handed to UK government

Plans for a 500MW gas fired power station in Pembrokeshire are to be examined by the UK government.

The Planning Inspectorate said it had accepted the South Hook power plant proposal for further scrutiny.

A final decision on building it will be made by Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles.

The plant at the LNG (liquefied natural gas) terminal near Milford Haven would produce enough electricity to power 900,000 homes.
