Pre-Construction Safety Report (PCSR) V1

For ease of access, the Pre-Construction Safety Report (PCSR) V1 has been split into chapters as shown in the table below. As part of the GDA process, the public was invited to review and comment on the documents.

Some documents may contain commercially sensitive, export-controlled or sensitive nuclear information and so, in line with GDA guidance, we have made judgements on areas to be redacted prior to being made public.
