A former nuclear power station employee has accused EDF Energy of being “disingenuous” over plans to use off-site land to relocate Sizewell B buildings in the way of the C plant. Terry Hodgson, a former district and county councillor for Leiston, worked at Sizewell A for 32 years until he retired in 2007 and now represents the Suffolk Association of Local Councils on the Sizewell Stakeholder Group (SSG). He told the latest SSG meeting that assurances had originally been given that certain areas near the nuclear site would not be used for development. “Now we are told they are to be used. This is disingenuous to the local community,” he said. Under plans being considered, part of a woodland planted to commemorate the coronation of George V will be bulldozed to make way for the relocation of some of the Sizewell B power station buildings. The existing buildings, including a visitors’ centre and training centre, are in the way of plans for a £16billion Sizewell C nuclear power station.
