Sizewell C: End Of Consultation
Today is your last chance to have your say on plans to build a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast.
EDF energy have released plans to build a third power station at Sizewell and have been asking the public for their views in twelve public meetings.
At the start of the consultation Richard Mayson Director of Planning and External Affairs, Nuclear New Build, EDF Energy, said: “Sizewell C would generate enough electricity to supply one in five homes in Britain. It would make an important contribution to the UK’s future needs for low-carbon, secure and affordable energy. It would also create significant business, training and employment opportunities locally, regionally and throughout the UK.
“I urge you to play an active role in this consultation process. We are committed to giving your feedback serious consideration and will take it into account as we prepare detailed plans for Sizewell C.”
The Sizewell C site would have two reactors capable of generating enough electricity to supply around five million homes. At the peak of construction the project would provide around 5,600 jobs on-site and more in the supply chain. Once operational, the new power station would support around 900 permanent direct jobs.
