My objections to the building of Sizewell C include the following points: Transport - I am concerned about the enormous impact of the proposed traffic volumes on the local community. New roads and railway link would sever communities, damage the rural footpath system and divide farmland. Rat running and disruption has not been adequately considered. Site Selection - The main site is in the wrong area with risk from flooding, sea level rise and coastal erosion. An area of outstanding natural beauty on the Heritage Coast will be destroyed. Campus - 2400 workers being housed in such a small area in a rural location is unacceptable. The area will experience traffic, noise, dust and light pollution and general disruption. Environment - as yet there is no indication of where fresh water is to be found for construction, leading to concerns for groundwater levels locally. Also considerable impact on local wildlife such as marsh harriers, and endangered species at sites such as Minsmere.
