Legal fight to stop Sizewell nuclear project destroying an historic Suffolk woodland

East Anglian Daily Times 24th Oct 2020, Campaigners have agreed to continue their battle to stop an historic
Suffolk woodland from being felled – and are taking the fight to the
Court of Appeal.
EDF is preparing to cut down the 100-year-old Coronation
Wood in order to use the land and Pillbox Field to relocate some Sizewell B
buildings ready for a start on Sizewell C.
However, TASC (Together Against
Sizewell C) says the project is premature because the twin reactor nuclear
power station has yet to receive planning permission. TASC has now applied
to Court of Appeal following the High Court’s dismissal of supporter Joan
Girling’s bid for a judicial review application of the planning consent
earlier this month. Joan Girling said, ‘‘The Planning Inspectorate has
now accepted EdF’s recently submitted Sizewell C DCO application.
However, it remains our view that permission for Sizewell C is not a
foregone conclusion. “There is no certainty that it will be given
approval. Until such time that the Sizewell C application is determined, it
is the view of many people that the needless destruction of Coronation Wood
should not go ahead.
