Sizewell C new nuclear power station

Updated: Jun 15

EDF Energy have now put in their application to build these vast nuclear reactors, 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

The Planning Inspectorate has to decide within 4 weeks whether or not to accept EDF's application. If they do, then we have a chance to register as Interested Parties. It is crucial that we all do this, so that we can take part in the examination. To begin with, each person sends in a summary of their objections.

Please get in touch with us and send your email so that we can let you know when you can register your interest. There are only a few weeks in which to do this. We will then guide you through the examination process.

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


Due to coronavirus, we're having to cancel face-to-face meetings until further notice.  Instead we are 'meeting' via Zoom.  The next one is on Monday 20 July at 7.30pm.  If you want to join in send us a message and we'll forward the link.
