Dear Sir,

The EADT article by your Richard Cornwell 25th January has revealed that local Community leaders and hopefully others are at last beginning to realize the immense and devastating consequences the proposed Sizewell C&D development will have here upon the whole area. EDF and their Chinese partners, Chinese General Nuclear (CGN) are intending to trash our heritage coast with their plans to build two of their latest, monster, yet unproven, French designed European Pressurised Reactors known as (EPR) 's. The EDF consultation III, which runs until the 29th march, has now revealed that the earlier preferred 800 metre long sea borne pier delivery option described in Consultation II is to be cancelled and EDF now intends to deliver all materials instead, using roads and rail as the alternative. This will now require even more traffic and major road changes on an even larger scale. They now consider sea deliveries would be environmentally damaging to the marine life! so instead they now intend to trash an even larger area of the whole heritage coast in agreement presumably with our local council,and councillors, local MP, all devoted to this crazy scheme and of course government too! EDF/CGN still however, propose to run several tunnels, approx. three kilometers or more far out sea to suck and blow sea water to cool their turbines as is currently the case for Sizewell B. Fishermen are often blamed for fish losses, over fishing the local and north sea waters. But now, I understand it is being realized by the environment Agency, and others groups that the real cause is in all probability connected perhaps to our nuclear industry. These many large pipes will continue to suck in the cooling water with up to a tonne of fish 'fry' every day so I understand, amounting to the loss of many many hundreds of tonnes of fish per year. All lost! This is where the trouble lies and there is no solution to it. The hidden reason for the real depletion of fish numbers has been exposed. Another revelation is that the concreting grade aggregate on the scale required, is only available from elsewhere and would have to be sourced from the other side of the country. The grades locally are of a pebble kind not of an angular granular aggregate, suitable for high grade concreting material. I watch developments with much interest.
