EDF Energy's proposals for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast

Capable of generating enough electricity to supply around five million homes

The two UK EPR reactors would generate electricity for up to 60 years

At the peak of construction the project would provide around 5,600 employment opportunities

Once operational, the new power station would support around 900 permanent jobs

Contributing to the UK's future needs for low carbon, secure and affordable energy

Sizewell C third stage of public consultation confirmed

EDF Energy is pleased to announce that the third stage of our public consultation for a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast, Sizewell C, will begin on Friday 4 January 2019.

The Stage 3 Public Consultation will run for 12 weeks, ending on Friday 29 March 2019.

The plans presented will include associated development needed to enable construction, such as park and ride sites and various options for road and rail improvements.  Exhibitions will also be held in schools and colleges to talk about the positive impact the project will have on skills in the region.

Jim Crawford, Sizewell C Project Development Director, said:  “Sizewell C will bring significant benefit to the East of England – jobs, education and skills development, as well as opportunities for local businesses. Our sister project in Somerset, Hinkley Point C, is already delivering, with Government figures showing South West companies winning contracts worth more than £1.3 billion.  By working innovatively with local Somerset firms to ensure they can bid for big contracts, we have already spent £650m in the region.  We want to deliver the same benefits for the East of England.

“Your views are important to us as we take proposals for Sizewell C forward.  Please engage with the project team and come along to your local exhibition. Find out more about the project and the proposals which have been informed by technical and environmental assessments, socioeconomic studies and the feedback received from our two previous stages of consultation.”


Public exhibitions

For the first two weeks of Stage 3 public consultation on the Sizewell C project, our team of experts will be available to answer your questions at public exhibitions. There will be a CGI model of the development as well as information boards and literature to help inform your response to the consultation.
