“My concerns about this proposal are:- Unsuitable site as rising sea levels already threaten the land. Hazardous nuclear power station surrounded and pounded by rising sea levels is a threat to life of so many on this island. The nuclear waste will add to that already not processed and stored. A future blight. The need to protect our diminishing natural woodland and coastal area from development. Assets we depend on in a world where future features like these will be rare. The beauty of our landscape has survived because we are not easily reached. Our roads are not coping now with the existing heavy traffic. More going through our villages and precious farm land makes no sense. This has been explored and turned down as not viable. The fact that foreign money and ownership is involved in such an important British utility is a threat to our national security. This is a threat to our internationally revered Minsmere Wildlife Sanctuary. Which would not survive the workings of such a major development. The cost of such a major scheme and its later decommissioning is far more than increasing the sustainable renewable projects which we can develop and market internationally as we are renowned in this area.”
