The campaign to save Coronation Wood

Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) Group are raising funds to mount a legal challenge against East Suffolk Council after it gave permission to EDF to cut down and clear 100-year-old Coronation Wood for an enlarged car park and visitors centre used for the current power station, Sizewell B, simply to facilitate their future proposals for Sizewell C. The wood stands next to RSPB Minsmere, a nationally important wildlife preserve located within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)

East Suffolk’s strategic planning committee approved the felling of the wood in September despite a huge number of objections from the public, including letters of objection from the AONB, Natural England, Suffolk Wildlife Trust, RSPB, local Town and Parish Councils, local groups such as Suffolk Preservation Society, Suffolk Coastal FOE and Theberton & Eastbridge Action Group (TEAGS). TASC argued that the application was “premature” as plans for Sizewell C have yet to be submitted. We could be losing this crucial piece of the AONB on the doorstep of Minsmere for no reason if plans do not go ahead, and once lost, there is no going back.
