The latest edition of the Bradwell B Community Newsletter landed on doormats in June. This newsletter from CGN (the Chinese state-owned company hoping to build a new nuclear power station at Bradwell) gives an update on what the company is doing. It is aimed at the ‘Bradwell B Community’. But what is this ‘community’? We only know that it is local and appears to comprise 30 – 40,000 addresses/people. If you are the recipient of a ‘community’ newsletter, you normally know the community and may share similar beliefs. Do CGN really believe that all the recipients of the newsletter support Bradwell B just because they describe them as the ‘Bradwell B community’? The assumption behind this is the Government’s belief that communities that had to host nuclear power stations in the past are quite content to do so in the future. Hence the siting process for new stations at former and unsuitable sites such as Bradwell and Sizewell.
