RSPB urges supporters to take up ‘last chance’ for say on Sizewell C. Wildlife experts are worried that development of a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast could have a “major adverse environmental impact” on one of the country’s most important bird habitats. The RSPB’s warning comes on the eve of the release of new details about the proposals for the Sizewell C twin reactor close to the RSPB Minsmere reserve. EDF Energy will begin its Stage 3 consultation on the massive £14billion project on Friday – releasing details of progress on key issues and the plans as a whole as it moves towards a submission to Government for consent. Like many organisations, the RSPB is eager to see the details and is calling on its supporters to ensure they make their voice heard.

The third stage of our public consultation for Sizewell C will begin on Friday 4 January 2019. Local residents, community groups, public representatives and businesses will have the opportunity to see the latest proposals for the new power station, which would be built to the north of Sizewell B. The plans we will present include associated development needed to enable construction, such as park and ride sites and various options for road and rail improvements. Our proposals have been informed by technical and environmental assessments and the feedback received from our two previous stages of consultation. Stage 3 Public Consultation will run for 12 weeks, ending on Friday 29 March 2019. Your views are important to us and will help shape the proposals for Sizewell C before we submit the application for development consent.
