Bosses at EDF Energy are holding an additional consultation event on Tuesday concerning its proposals for Sizewell C.

It will specifically look at the affect that the potential development could have on the coastline. Both Suffolk Coastal and Waveney district councils asked for the meeting after local concerns about the impact of another power station being built.

Andy Smith, Suffolk Coastal’s cabinet member for planning, said: “I would urge anyone with any interest in this topic to register for the event. It should be an excellent opportunity to get a fuller understanding of all the implications that a Sizewell C might have.

“Much of the attention to date has been focussed on the possible impacts on roads and local communities, but there are genuine concerns about what affect the building of a new power station could have on our precious and fragile coastline. EDF will be giving a presentation on the coastal processes and how they could be affected, and there will be a chance to also ask follow up questions for those who want further clarification.”

The meeting is being held in the Britten-Pears Building at Snape Maltings at 4pm. To attend contact Nicola Corbett at EDF on 01728 833891 or email nicola.corbett@edf-energy.com.

Suffolk County Council’s cabinet will debate its response to the Sizewell C consultation on the same day and Suffolk Coastal’s cabinet will consider its position on Tuesday, February 5.

Mr Smith added: “We are working very hard, as one team with the county council, to get the best possible result for our communities. While we support the project in principle, its scale is huge, both as a construction project and then for the foreseeable future.

“Our job is to maximise the advantages and minimise the problems which it will bring to our area, and we look to EDF to work proactively with us to that end.”

People have until February 6 to give their views on the Sizewell C proposals.
