Increased construction traffic through our villages At peak up to 700 HGVs, 700 LGVs, 650 buses and thousands of Sizewell C-related cars would use the B1122 through Yoxford and Middleton Moor, with a bypass of Theberton. Heavy construction traffic would potentially cause damage through vibration to Theberton Church and private property being located close to the B1122. The Theberton bypass affects too many residents and still places unfair congestion, noise, pollution, vibration damage and accidents on residents and visitors. Our groups and residents have never advocated bypasses around B1122 villages. The bypass will cut Theberton in two and close connecting roads to Saxmundham. This will effectively prevent parishoners from accessing church services. Accommodation, services and wellbeing EDF accommodation plans have attracted widespread criticism, proposing a new ‘town’ for 2,400 workers, of 3-4 storey blocks with car parks and leisure facilities, on a greenfield site close to Minsmere and next to Eastbridge, a hamlet of 50 people. The EDF accommodation campus will bring noise, air and light pollution, a massive increase in traffic, and the potential for anti-social behaviour. This will affect our health and wellbeing and place an unfair burden on Leiston, Eastbridge, Theberton and Minsmere. EDF has yet conducted many vital studies including Health and Community. The project must not reduce locals’ access to emergency services and healthcare.
