Construction will damage the things that make this part of Suffolk so special: peace, tranquility and dark night skies. Visitors will be driven away by eyesores , closed footpaths and beaches, disruption, noise and pollution, so hurting tourism businesses.
No jetty and a dubious rail strategy will put up to 1,500 HGVs a day on our roads.
Construction will threaten some of the most biodiverse habitats in the UK and the Heritage Coast, including two Sites of Special Scientiﬁc Interest and the nationally treasured Minsmere Reserve. It will be impossible to recover from the loss of habitats that host rare birds, animals and plants.
EDF has ignored opposition to a campus for 2,400 workers at Eastbridge from local people, Councils and our MP.
The project is enormous - too big for the setting and land available. The government suggests that a single new nuclear power station should occupy 30 hectares (based on Sizewell B). Sizewell C & D are squeezed into only 32 hectares.
