Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) believes that plans for a new nuclear development at Sizewell have been exposed as entirely inadequate in the last few weeks. TASC’s Chairman, Pete Wilkinson, said today, ‘Since the delivery of a 1500 petition to the Leader of Suffolk County Council earlier this month, we have seen a surge in support for our position of outright opposition to Sizewell, local artists and actors voicing their concerns and the RSPB warning that the most important bird reserve in the country, Minsmere, is potentially threatened by the Sizewell development. Our petitions are attracting more and more signatures and we are convinced that the hurdles to building such a complicated and dangerous plant in such a confined and remote area will be recognised as overwhelming and terminal. With recent increased media interest in the issue, people are waking up to the sheer scale of the environmental and infrastructure changes the plant will require and they are becoming more and more vocal in opposition. It is very encouraging.’

Campaigners called for a fourth stage of public consultation on the proposals for a new twin reactor nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast as they handed in their responses to the latest proposals. At present there are no plans for more consultation – one extra stage has already been held – but there has been concern from opponents and stakeholders, including both district and county council, that more information is needed and questions remain unanswered. Campaigners from Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell (TEAGS), B1122 Action Group and Minsmere Levels Stakeholder Group – together with Theberton & Eastbridge Parish Council – visited EDF’s Leiston office to jointly hand in their responses to EDF’s Stage 3 proposals on Sizewell C. Alison Downes, of TEAGS, said: “Our Groups are unanimous in calling for an additional stage of consultation given the lack of detail provided by EDF and the substantial opposition to major planks of its proposals – transport and accommodation – and significant concern about environmental impacts.
