Planning Application by EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Limited

Sizewell B Relocated Facilities, Sizewell, Suffolk

Ref no: DC/19/1637/FUL

EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Limited has submitted a planning application to East Suffolk Council for the relocation of some of Sizewell B facilities. 

The main buildings we are proposing to move during this phase are related to administration, education and training, along with supporting car parking as these buildings are located on land we would like to use for Sizewell C, if we gain planning permission for the proposed new power station.

If you would like to read the full planning application it can be found on the council’s website at https://www.eastsuffolk.gov.uk/planning/planning-applications/publicaccess/

The Non-Technical Summary of the Environmental Statement summarises all the proposals more briefly and can also be found on the Council’s website, together with all the supporting planning application documentation.  The closing date for comments is 24 May 2019.

It is important to note that if you have any comments on this stage of the proposals these should be directed to East Suffolk Council, Planning Department quoting the planning application reference above.

Monday 4 September, 7.30pm, Theberton Jubilee Hall, (Off Church Road at the junction with the B1122 Leiston Road)

Suffolk Coastal Friends of the Earth are hosting an illustrated presentation about the wildlife of the Sizewell Belts.

The warden of Sizewell Belts Site of Special Scientific Interest, Dayne West, will give a presentation about the resident and visiting wildlife of this very special area.  The site is designated as an SSSI for its marshes and fen meadows, where rare orchids and other uncommon flowers are found.  It is also the feeding grounds of bats, such as the rare Barbastelle and Soprano Pipistrelle, which live in the adjacent woods.  Birds such as Marsh Harrier are to be seen there, along with the Greater Bittern, sometimes flying over from RSPB Minsmere, which is close by.

The ponds and ditches provide perfect habitats for many dragonflies and you may be lucky enough to see a Hobby hunting for them.  

Protected animals, including otters and water voles, are to be found in the river and reed beds.

Yet, despite its designation as an important SSSI, this is the very place where EDF Energy is planning to build the two massive reactors for Sizewell C nuclear power station.  If it goes ahead, these precious habitats will be either completely destroyed or ruined, and the animals, birds and plants dependent upon them are unlikely to survive.

It is crucial that we know what is there and are most grateful to Dayne for agreeing to come and give this talk.  There will also be the opportunity to ask questions.  Don't miss it!

Entrance is just £3.50 including refreshments. All proceeds will be shared between Suffolk Coastal Friends of the Earth and Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
