Both Maldon District Council and the company behind the plans for Bradwell B have issued statements today (Thursday, 11 February) following “leaked” news that the developers have paused consultation with the council for a year. The Bradwell Against New Nuclear Group (BANNG) issued a press release shortly before 1pm claiming that it had discovered that Maldon District Council had “recently been informed by the developer (BRB) applying for consent to build the nuclear power plant at Bradwell on Sea that “engagement and all active project work will pause for at least a year”.” A spokesperson for BANNG said: “We have been told that BRB stated they “remain committed to the project” and MDC plan to re-engage with them “when they are ready to do so”. BANGG has said that it will “follow up on the implications” of this and have entitled the release with the question: “Now you see it, now you don’t…?” Following the claim, Maldon Nub News approached both Maldon District Council and Bradwell B Power Generation Company (BRB) for statements. The contents of the letter from BRB to the council are also included below. Maldon District Council Leader, Councillor Wendy Stamp, said: “Maldon District Council has received a letter from Alan Raymant, Chief Executive of BRB to inform us that BRB’s engagement with the council will temporarily pause.
