Sizewell C new nuclear power station

Updated: Sep 24

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 now decided to accept EDF's application. We can now register as Interested Parties - deadline 30 September! 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. You can find the official form here:


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.



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 19 October at 7.30pm.  If you want to join in send us a message and we'll forward the link.
