Sign the Petition: EDF’s huge Sizewell C nuclear project is a white elephant – before it has even begun. It would be a slow, destructive and expensive bridge to nowhere that will suck vital funds away from renewable energy and storage that can fight climate change faster and more cheaply. Sizewell C would be the BIGGEST construction site in Europe for 10 – 12 years, bringing: An extra 12,000 trucks, buses, vans and cars per day onto Suffolk’s roads. An invasion of 6,000 workers. Harm to our local businesses and tourism industry. Damage to our much-loved landscapes and wildlife habitats, including internationally-famous RSPB Minsmere.

A HIGH COURT judicial review began today into plans by an energy giant to fell a historic woodland to make space for buildings and car parks. The structure is part of the development of the proposed new Sizewell C nuclear power station in East Suffolk. Tory-controlled East Suffolk Council has given planning permission to French state-owned EDF energy to fell the woodland in advance of the development. A legal challenge against the granting of planning permission is being mounted by the Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) campaign. The campaigners argue that the felling of the trees will cause untold damage to a historic woodland, where some trees are around 100 years old. They said that permission for the felling should not have been given ahead of permission being granted for the construction of Sizewell C.
