Environment Agency concerned over ‘lack of detail’ on Sizewell C plans

The Environment Agency has flagged a series of concerns over proposals for a new nuclear power station in Suffolk, warning that a lack of detail means that the impacts and proposed suitability of mitigations "cannot be assessed at this time".

Energy firm EDF plans to build and operate the new Sizewell C nuclear power station in Suffolk on land immediately to the north of the Sizewell B power station.

The application - which has yet to be submitted - will be determined via the fast-track Planning Act 2008 regime for nationally significant infrastructure projects, with the business secretary responsible for making a final decision. According to the Planning Inspectorate, the application is expected to be submitted in the first quarter of 2020.
