Save the Severn Estuary is a non-partisan coalition of scientists, experts, individuals and organisations calling on the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to revoke the license granted to EDF (Électricité de France) which allows for the dumping of sediment contaminated by the Hinkley nuclear power stations in the Severn Estuary near Portishead. This is a consequence of building a water intake for the new power station which in itself will kill millions of fish when operational. Please also make a donation towards the costs of legal action we are taking. We have set up a company for this purpose in order to make the fundraising easier. We are represented by Leigh Day, and the legal case seeks the quashing of EDF’s license. In order to proceed with a judicial review against the MMO, we are aiming to raise £60,000 to cover all of the costs associated with the legal action. We need your support: please contribute and share this page now!
