The new boss at Bradwell B Power Station claims the nuclear plant “will bring significant benefits” to the community. Alan Raymant has been appointed as chief executive officer at the controversial facility. He grew up in Brightlingsea and went school in Colchester. Mr Raymant says he is hopeful the community will get behind the plans. He said: “As someone with strong connections to this part of the country, I’m delighted to be joining the Bradwell B project. “Bradwell B will bring significant benefits to the area, such as jobs, skills and investment. A Bradwell B spokesman said: “In the coming months, we will be carrying out geophysical, oceanographic and ecological investigations offshore involving a number of small boats, which will be profiling the seabed and marine environment, and providing data on the tides and currents. “We will also be preparing onsite for further investigative works to take place in the spring and summer. “All of these surveys and investigations will help inform the impact assessment and design of the proposed power station. “Once we have sufficient information, we will consult with the local community on our initial proposals.” Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group (BANNG) was set up 11 years ago to oppose the plans for a new power station.

We took a look from three different perspectives of what it would be like if the plans for Bradwell B Nuclear Power Station actually went ahead. With serious environmental designations affecting the site, with the Blackwater Estuary’s marine conservation zone (MCZ) and forthcoming sea level rise it is clear that this proposal makes absolutely no sense at all, ever. A big thanks to Mersea boy Jim Pullen for use of his drone footage.
