The Sizewell C Project

Received 24 September 2020
From Dr Bron Lipkin

Representation

I wish to raise the following issues of great concern about the Sizewell C project . I believe it is the wrong project in the wrong place  with significant sea flooding risk  from climate change. There will be unacceptable adverse impact on the adjacent internationally designated sites of ecological importance and cultural heritage value. I am particularly concerned about the harm to Minsmere which is of international importance and significance. There are no less than eight other uncoordinated energy projects planned for the locality  and these are completely uncoordinated There will be unacceptable impacts on local communities, greatly increased traffic, significant increases in noise. 6,000 workers will be coming to live in the area, no less than 2,400 in a Worker campus in a rural location which establishment will mean the death knell of an entire village (Eastbridge) The inevitable increased pressure on health, social and emergency services do not seem to have been adequately planned for .   Road transport planning is inadequate ; there will be enormous and adverse impact on local communities. HGV numbers are as high as those under the “Road-Led” proposals already rejected .   In closing I also wish to endorse the Relevant Representation submitted by Stop Sizewell C and RSPB, and finally I wish to say that I consider the Sizewell C application to be singularly unsuitable for a digital examination process like this.
