Very unwise plan: UK’s Bradwell B nuclear project vulnerable to climate extremes

BANNG 2nd Jan 2020, It may appear that all has been quiet on the eastern front in the recent past but CGN seems intent on carrying out its plans to build Bradwell B and is continuing with its site investigations. 2020 will be an important, probably crucial, year in terms of whether plans for new nuclear power plants move forward. The Bradwell B Generic Design Assessment (GDA) will be at its peak. EDF will apply for Development Consent (DCO) for Sizewell C.
We anticipate there will be a big push by the new Government and the
nuclear industry for new nuclear development. And Bradwell B will be slowly
approaching its pre-application stage, which could begin within the next
two years.
Time for opposition is, therefore, shortening, urgency is
growing and BANNG will need all supporters to play a part.
Above all, it is now acknowledged that climate change poses major threats to coastal areas of the world and one of these is the Bradwell B site. We must continue to fight against the hair-brained proposal not only for new nuclear reactors but also the long-term storage of highly radioactive wastes on a site that is vulnerable to sea-level rise, flooding, storm surges and coastal
erosion.
