Students and lecturers from the University of Suffolk are gaining valuable experience by helping the promoters of Sizewell C understand what people think of the latest consultation for the proposed power station.

The university was awarded the contract to conduct exit interviews at consultation exhibitions currently running across east Suffolk.

So far 2,500 people have visited to find out more and to see the changes made since the last consultation.

Dr Will Thomas said: “The Sizewell C exhibitions are a great way for our students to get real experience in conducting research for an industry on our doorstep.

“The timing has worked really well as the students are just about to embark on their module on research later this term.”

Jm Crawford, Sizewell C project development director, said: “It’s great to be able to use a local university to conduct this important research. The exhibitions have been really busy and we want to be sure that people are getting the information they need.”
