The UK & Ireland Nuclear Free Local Authorities (NFLA) note that a Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) public petition, raising concerns and opposition to the development of a new nuclear reactor at Sizewell in Suffolk, has had now over 105,000 signatures. One of the key concerns around building Sizewell C is its potential impact to the sensitive local environmental sites adjoining or close to the proposed site. This includes the internationally renowned RPSB Minsmere site and a number of other Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It has been notable in relation to Sizewell C how strong the level of opposition has been from local environmental groups.
