Energy firm EDF is hoping its landmark Hinkley Point C project in Somerset will provide a blueprint for the proposed Sizewell C nuclear power station in Suffolk. The plans include two reactors which the company says would be capable of generating enough low carbon electricity to supply more than 6M homes. They could also produce around 9M.t fewer carbon emissions each year compared to an equivalent gas-fired power station. The project is planned for the Suffolk coast at the site of EDF’s Sizewell B nuclear power plant and is an almost identical replica of Hinkley Point C.

Radical changes could be made to a Suffolk town centre ahead of the proposed construction of a new nuclear power station. Leiston-cum-Sizewell Town Council is now consulting on plans to make changes in the town centre while plans for Sizewell C are considered. The proposals will include a one-way system designed to make the town centre safer, a state-of-the art cycle route linking the town centre with the wider area as well as plans to “green” the streetscape.
