Campaigners against Sizewell C nuclear project concerned that UK govt plans to stop local opposition to it.

Sizewell C campaigners’ fears about Government plans to accelerate nuclear
growth. Campaigners fighting plans for the Sizewell C nuclear power station
have expressed concerns about possible Government funding to help rapidly
accelerate the project.

Alison Downes, a spokesperson for campaign group
Stop Sizewell C, said she was “disturbed” about the acceleration proposal,
believing that local people could be stripped of the ability to oppose new
nuclear plants, as “planning and bureaucracy” was evaded.

She added: “We
are also concerned that industry bosses complained that the Environment
Agency and Marine Management Organisation are slowing them down. “The
notion that local people might lose their ability to oppose projects is
totally anti-democratic and detailed scrutiny by government agencies is
critical to ensure essential safeguards such as a site not flooding. East Anglian Daily Times 22nd March 2022
