The site at Eastbridge is too small for the proposed construction. It is impossible to construct a building of this size without causing environmental damage Will cause a huge noise and light pollution to what is a quiet countryside. Will virtually isolate Eastbridge. Bring to the area numbers of workers from outside the area that has covid-19 to this part of Suffolk that is relatively free. I am deeply concerned about the impact Sizewell C will have by building on the proposed site. EDF cannot build a power station of this size without causing permanent environmental damage to the surround area. Noise and air pollution to what is a quiet country area will reach unacceptable levels. It will have a devastating effect on Minsmere, on it’s biodiversity and visiter numbers. It’s access roads will be used as a ‘rat’ run between Westleton via Eastbridge to the site to avoid the large volume of construction traffic on the B1120. This is an important area for tourists who will be deterred from visiting the area and will have a negative effect on the economy. 6000 workers moving into what is virtually a Covid-19 free area should be considered.
