WATCH our “virtual” Public Meeting and read below for how you can help.
* Write to EDF and ask them not to submit an application for a Development Consent Order during any coronavirus restrictions (which government advisers say could last most of the year). EDF will likely submit in April. Tell them a short delay would be unacceptable and they should 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 planning process would be severely compromised. Email EDF on email@example.com and copy your message to the Planning Inspectorate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* If you are a Suffolk resident – please message your County Councillor and East Suffolk Councillors. Ask them to tell their leadership to convey to EDF that this is not the right time. Contacts for local Councillors can also be found below.
* You can also ask Suffolk Coastal MP Therese Coffey to support this message: email@example.com (best to email her separately and – if you are a constituent – include your address).
A letter from 53 Town and Parish Councils making this request can be viewed/downloaded from here: you are welcome to use any of these points but do also personalise your messages 53TownParishCouncilsEDF31March
