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. We say Sizewell C is the wrong project in the wrong place, and that there are better alternatives in the fight against Climate Change. EDF aims to apply for planning consent very soon.

Email EDF on info@sizewellc.co.uk and tell them it would be unacceptable were they to submit an application for a #SizewellC Development Consent Order during ANY coronavirus restrictions (which government advisers say could last most of the year). On 26 March, EDF said it would delay “a few weeks”. Tell them they must not proceed until the Planning Inspectorate, Government’s Statutory Advisers, Local Authorities, Parish and Town Councils, Groups and individuals are fully resourced and fully able to engage. Without this, the robustness of the planning process would be severely compromised. Please blind cc info@stopsizewellc.org #StopSizewellC

If you are a Suffolk Coastal constituent, please also email Therese Coffey MP and ask for her support for this message: therese.coffey.mp@parliament.uk. It's best to email her separately and you must include your address.

"THE village which has the Hinkley C construction site on its doorstep feels EDF is not going far enough in its measures to combat the coronavirus. On Tuesday (March 24), EDF announced that it would be looking to halve its on-site workforce to around 2,000 to continue construction of the plinths upon which the station’s twin reactors will stand, and enable better implementation of social distancing measures. However Chris Morgan, the chairman of Stogursey Parish Council, whose village neighbours the new nuclear power station site, said residents were becoming 'increasingly concerned'. In a letter to EDF, Cllr Morgan writes: "Residents of the parish are increasingly concerned that HPC contractors temporarily housed in the area, especially the village, are continuing to travel cross country to visit family at weekends, and then returning. "Many of them travelling to their homes in South Wales and the West Midlands - currently Covid-19 hotspots." Cllr Morgan states that in light of the latest guidance from the government regarding unnecessary travel and the potential spread of the virus, this position was 'unacceptable and unsustainable'."

"The Treasury will pay the wages of hundreds of workers building the £22.5bn Hinkley Point C nuclear power station as developer EDF and its contractors slash costs. Work is under way to furlough workers onto the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme where the Government will pay 80pc of their wages until the crisis recedes and they can return to work. French state-owned EDF said last week it was halving numbers at Hinkley, in Somerset, to around 2,000, to try and maintain social distancing. While some of those taken off site are continuing to work in back office roles, the burden of paying wages for hundreds of them will be transferred to the state."

A spokeswoman for Stop Sizewell C said: “given the seriousness of this medical crisis and the significant national and local impacts of Sizewell C it would be unacceptable if there was only a short delay." https://t.co/ZsCYHBBcYw
