The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Suffolk County Council raised over 50 concerns about the Sizewell nuclear project, but UK govt going ahead anyway?

Anglian Daily Times 10th Nov 2020,  The Government has vowed to ensure it considers whether Sizewell C mitigation measures are stringent enough, after a Suffolk MP called for adequate scrutiny of the plans. Sources have indicated that the Government is close to giving the go ahead for the £20 billion scheme on the Suffolk coast, prompting Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter to call on the Secretary of State for Business, Alok Sharma, to ensure developers EDF will be “held to account and will properly engage with theconsultation to implement the changes needed to improve road and rail infrastructure”.

Raising the issue in Parliament on Tuesday morning, Dr Poulter said that while the development would bring benefits such as  de-carbonisation and thousands of new jobs, it was “not a case of Sizewell C being built at any cost”. He said: “Many people in Suffolk have concerns about the failure of EDF to properly engage with the consultation process. “There are still over 50 outstanding concerns raised by Suffolk County Council.”
