Sizewell C new nuclear power station

Updated: Mar 18

EDF Energy's application to build these vast nuclear reactors will shortly be examined by the Planning Inspectorate. They would be right within our tranquil Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Please help us to fight this monstrosity.

This is what our beautiful AONB would look like.

The two massive reactors for Sizewell C nuclear power station with four-lane access road would be built directly on the NE of Sizewell Marshes Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). This is supposed to be protected and designated for its flowering fen meadow, now a rare habitat. Moreover, the whole of the main development site would be in Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), designated for its beauty of landscape and tranquillity. Instead of quiet beauty we would have one of the biggest building sites in Europe, lasting for at least 12 years, and looking like the above. Please help us to save our wonderful coast with its rare wildlife!

The application process

Now that we've registered as Interested Parties, EDF Energy has decided to make changes! They ran yet another consultation, the fifth, for 30 days, beginning the week of 16 November. We still don't know if the new proposals will be included as part of the examination. This means that we will have to pay our experts double for analysing the original application as well as the changes. What a shambles! The Examination won't now start until possibly the middle of April.

Do get in touch so that we can guide you through the subsequent process: s.coastalfoe@yahoo.co.uk.

Please help us stop this hideous monster and tell EDF that Sizewell C is not wanted.
