The Sizewell C Project
Received 25 September 2020
From Jennie Greenhalgh
“I am opposed to EDF building a nuclear power station at Sizewell and would like the following answers: 1. Where will be nuclear waste be treated and stored? How safe will it be? 2. How will the roads be sufficiently improved to deal with the very heavy traffic throughout coastal Suffolk area? Communities will be divided by extra roads and roundabouts. There is too much dependency on HGV's using our roads, adding to climate crisis. Little provision for sea and rail. 3. How will light, noise and air pollution be addressed? Poor air quality will have a severe detrimental affect on local residents. 4. This is an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with diverse and unique wild life and flora and fauna. How will this be protected? 5. The construction will demand fresh water in an area that relies on this for farming foods. How will you obtain water needed? 6. Marine life will be devastated, again affecting national and local fish supplies. How will you protect our precious seas? 7. Climate change - Is inevitable in the next 10 years, does the risk of rising sea levels not affect the safety of building a nuclear power station so close to coast. 8. How much will fuel bills be increased to reflect the actual cost of building, if ever completed? 9. Is this still to be financed by French Government through EDF? We need to be mindful of world markets and how these may affect us in future years. 10. The tourist industry will be badly affected by increased traffic, workers, pollution, destruction of a huge coastal area of the county. 11. EDF's application is not suitable for being examined digitally, and their documents and responses have been inadequate to date. 12. What compensation is being offered to local villages, is does not seem like anywhere near enough at present, considering quality of lives will be disrupted for next 10-15 years. I would also like to endorse Stop Sizewell C's Relevant Representation.”
