Mitigating proposals for the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power plant were “a disappointment”, a government Planning Inspectorate hearing was told. Suffolk County Council told the four-day public hearing that it could not support the project as it stood. The council said it needed reassurances on sea and rail transport options, and on how jobs and training could benefit local people. The developer, EDF, has not responded yet to the comments made so far. Some 15 voices spoke at the Tuesday morning session, almost all critical of either the power plant itself or EDF’s mitigation impact proposals. Speaking for Suffolk County Council, Richard Rout said that while it supported the project in principle, “the development as it stands was currently a disappointment for many who may wish to support it”.
