Stop Sizewell C! Wrong Project, Wrong Time, Wrong Place.
EDF’s plans to build two new nuclear reactors at Sizewell in east Suffolk will have a devastating impact on this unique and magical place and is too slow and expensive compared to alternatives in the fight against Climate Change. Sizewell C was granted planning consent in July 2022, against the recommendation of the Planning Inspectorate. A Final Investment Decision is not expected until the end of 2023 at the earliest, more likely 2024.
How can we stop Sizewell C?
- Money! If no one will invest, it cannot go ahead. You can help by writing to pension funds or other potential investors. We also need to discourage the government from investing, Write to the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt and tell him there are more urgent and better value for money than continuing to support Sizewell C: firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP. Salutation Dear Chancellor
- Politics. If Sizewell C, or the tax needed to finance it, is unpopular, Ministers will listen. Sign our Petition with Together Against Sizewell C at www.stopsizewellcpetition.com or write to The Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP: email@example.com, Dear Secretary of State.
- Planning. We are supporting an application for a Judicial Review filed by Together Against Sizewell C in August 2022, against the planning decision. A hearing is expected March 2023.
