EDF Energy has announced the third consultation on its plans for Sizewell C on the Suffolk coast will start on 4 January. The £16bn plant would be built next to the existing Sizewell B reactor. EDF Energy said it hoped it would be the final consultation before the plans went to the Planning Inspectorate. The Suffolk Preservation Society has previously opposed the plans, saying the plant would “threaten environmental damage on an unprecedented scale”. In a statement, the French government-owned company said it had spent about £100m on the project so far, along with its partner China General Nuclear (CGN). They have been involved in discussions with the UK government and 12 other parties over the raising of the investment needed to build the nuclear reactor.
