The Sizewell C Project
Received 19 September 2020
From Elisabeth Walker
“wish to register concern about the development’s long-term – in some cases irreparable -effect upon and damage to the heritage coast, the AONBs and ancient landscape of Suffolk coastal. I wish to register concerns about building this power plant on a shoreline threatened by both erosion and sea level rise at a time of increasing climate change I wish to register additional concerns about the delivery of both building materials, and subsequently the energy generated by land rather than by sea. I wish to register my concerns as to the environmental and societal impact of that overland delivery. I wish to register my concerns as to the cost of the power produced, especially in light of the waste that remains. I wish to register my concerns about the impact this construction will have on local people’s way of life. I wish to register my concerns that the income brought in by both construction and operation will in no way ameliorate the damage of this project to the income to the tourist industry on which this Heritage Coast relies. I wish to register my concern about the seeming paucity of truly local jobs gained and how many other local jobs lost through Sizewell C. I wish to register my concerns as to the disproportionate loss caused to our community and environment by this project, and the correspondingly disproportionate benefits that are offered elsewhere.”
