Funding - Chinese involvement is unacceptable. No information as to how this project is to be funded. The costs are out of proportion to the benefit Reactor is outdated and known to be unreliable. Other methods of electricity generation are now available. Transport - Proposed new road will result in two roads to the same destination, divide farmland and damage the footpath system. Rat running has not be addressed. Site - The site is inappropriate with the likelihood of rising sea level before it is decommissioned, coastal erosion is a huge problem on this section of coast, risk of flooding. AONB will be destroyed. Not possible to mitigate this loss as cannot be replicated. Endangered species at Minsmere will be affected Campus - inappropriate to house 2400 workers in a small rural location with no GP and little facilities. Traffic, noise, dust and light pollution will result. Small local communities will be adversely affected. Fresh water. There is insufficient fresh water for this project. Local groundwater supplies will be seriously affected
