After nearly four years, just one month remains for members of the public to comment on the reactor technology for the proposed nuclear power station at Bradwell B. The China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) and the French power company EDF, through their joint venture company General Nuclear System Limited, initiated the Generic Design Assessment (GDA) process of the proposed reactor in January 2017. The public comment process, allowing the public to provide feedback on the UK HPR1000 reactor technology planned for use at Bradwell B, opened in November 2017 and is due to finish on Friday, 17 September 2021. Since it began, a range of concerns have been raised, including those related to climate change, safety and technical questions.
