People in east Suffolk are being urged to take part in the latest round of consultation about Sizewell C nuclear power station.
Suffolk Coastal District Council and Suffolk County Council have stressed the need for everyone to take an active part in the consultation, which has been launched by EDF Energy. And they have pledged to help and support town and parish councils to ensure they have their say during the 12-week public consultation.
This stage of the consultation process will seek views on the development needed to enable construction, and EDF Energy will reveal proposals and various options for road and rail improvements in the area that would be affected by the construction of such development.
The two councils are key members of the Sizewell C Joint Local Authority Group (JLAG), which was established to facilitate a joint local authority approach to the challenges and opportunities that will result from the construction and operation of the proposed new nuclear power station.
EDF Energy’s Stage 3 Public Consultation will run for 12 weeks, ending on Friday, 29 March 2019.
This gives people the opportunity to see the latest proposals for the new power station, which would be built to the north of Sizewell B. The plans include associated development needed to enable construction, such as park and ride sites and various options for road and rail improvements.
As well as formulating a common approach between Suffolk Coastal District Council and Suffolk County Council to the Sizewell C New Nuclear development, JLAG is also keen to provide practical help and support to the local town and parish councils.
