Proposed Sizewell C Nuclear Development
Case Reference: EN010012


“In order to comply with the pre-application process, EDF were required to produce an updated Environmental Statement to show that they have investigated and understood all of the aspects that the development of Sizewell C will have on the local habitat and community. Once EDF produced their 2019 report, statutory bodies such as the local councils and the environment agency were able to respond and comment on the scope and detail of the environmental statement. The statement and responses were then sent to the secretary of state who assessed them and from the assessment produced an opinion on what topics EDF need to include, and which areas they need to do more work on. This assessment (SCOPING OPINION Proposed Sizewell C Nuclear Development) was published in July 2019. It is a long report, and the most interesting parts are the appendices of the responses from the statutory bodies.”
