Sizewell C Developments

On 30 September the pre-examination stage of the Sizewell C Planning Process concluded. Hundreds of residents, community organisations and stakeholders like Natural England and the Environment Agency have sent their relevant representations to PINS.

The DCO application included proposals for materials to be delivered to Sizewell C by road, rail and sea. However, one of the issues people and organisations like East Suffolk and Suffolk County Councils continued to be concerned about was the number of HGV deliveries forecast in the transport strategy. We were also asked to provide more reassurance about safeguarding the local environment.

We listened to those views with a responsibility to act on them. And that is what we are doing now. With the benefit of more experience from Hinkley Point C and proposals from our own growing team of engineers, we are now able to consult on some new opportunities to further reduce the impact of construction on local communities and the environment. From 18 November to 18 December the public will have the opportunity to provide their feedback on these proposed changes.

*Please find attached an updated briefing on the next steps for the Sizewell C planning process and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on freephone 0800 197 6102.

Councils and the public will have the oppportuntiy to comment on the proposed changes between WEDNESDAY 18TH NOVEMBER AND FRIDAY 18TH DECEMBER 2020.  The proposed changes will be available to download online at from Wednesday 18th November 2020.

Please see the important information below from EDF Energy regarding traffic surveys being carried out throughout the village:-

"Our appointed contractors, Warner Surveys will commence the topo surveys from tomorrow (Wednesday 14th October) until early November.  There will be two surveyors from Warner Surveys taking highway measurements around the village. This is the same contractor who did the first round of highway topo surveys this summer.  It is shorter notice than we would usually expect to give, however there was an opportunity to start these imminently which would fit in with the schedule".
