No need for a nuclear reactor at Bradwell, UK

Essex Gazette 1st April 2021, A NATIONAL anti-nuclear campaign group has spoken out against the
technology proposed for a new nuclear power station at Bradwell B.

The Nuclear Free Local Authorities attended the webinar hosted by the Environment Agency, which was a consultation on the next stage of the generic design assessment for the nuclear reactor being developed by CGN.
Alongside the Blackwater Against New Nuclear Group, the national campaign group felt there was a “real frustration” during the meeting, citing oncerns with nuclear safety issues. NFLA steering committee chairman David
Blackburn said:

“The reductions in the costs of renewable energy and the ease with which they are being developed are clear indications that the need for new nuclear is reducing. “The huge costs of Hinkley Point C also mean any further new nuclear reactors are only likely to happen with an effective huge public subsidy. “Our view is there is no need for a new
nuclear reactor at Bradwell and as such this generic design assessment should be concluded.”
