As Wylfa nuclear project is rejected, Sizewell C nuclear project should be dead in the water

East Anglian Daily Times 9th Feb 2021, Campaigners fighting plans for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolkcoast say the project should be “dead in the water” after a similar scheme
was rejected on environmental grounds. They say the proposed Sizewell C
site has far more important wildlife and environment than Wylfa, which has
been described as “the best site available globally” for a new power plant.
But despite experts expecting it to get the go-ahead, the Planning
Inspectorate has recommended that the Wylfa Newydd project site regarded as
“the best” be rejected by the Government.
Alison Downes of Stop Sizewell C said: “If the Planning Inspectorate recommended refusing the Wylfa project on the grounds of impacts on terrestrial ecology, what hope for Sizewell C?
“Wholly within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural
Beauty and impacting Sizewell Marshes SSSI and internationally famous RSPB
Minsmere, this project should be dead in the water. “Our grave concern is
that the Secretary of State could approve a project they would otherwise
refuse because it is seen as their only remaining option.”
