Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay is appealing to the Prime Minster to give the green light and intervene to turn the tide on the economic downturn. With just days to go until planning consent expires, they are calling on Boris Johnson to step in and overrule Whitehall officials who are preventing work starting on site.
Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay is shovel-ready to power Britain’s green recovery. The alliance of engineering and delivery partners, and a nationwide supply chain, will bring 2,200 jobs and £850 million in immediate investment to Wales and other hard hit areas of the UK. Work can begin this summer delivering onstream power in less than four years.
Tidal Lagoon CEO Mark Shorrock told BBC Radio 4 Today programme: “We are asking the Prime Minister, who expressed support for the lagoon when he was running for the Tory leadership, to recognise that this is exactly the kind of project the country needs. He’s said he wants to see Swansea get going. He’s said Britain’s recovery is all about jobs, apprenticeships and long term investment and we have this wonderful project that’s on the cusp of being able to break ground at the end of the week with our global alliance partners.” The full story is here.
