**Update 18 July 2019: EDF has launched Stage 4 consultations on Sizewell C which will run to 27 September 2019, so please take action to help us protect this special place -- we've made it really easy to do so using the email template below!**
Energy Company EDF plans to build two new power stations at Sizewell on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. The biggest construction site the east of England will have ever seen, it will sever the beautiful and peaceful Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in half during the decade or more the two reactors will take to build.
The impact on local communities and the environment will be huge. EDF will construct a temporary multi-storey “town” for 2,400 workers and dig three massive quarries, a mile from RSPB Minsmere nature reserve and even closer to the peaceful hamlet of Eastbridge. Transport proposals could see a thousand lorries a day on a new road that runs far too close to vulnerable communities.
Please help us continue to build a storm of protest, to show EDF how many of us want them to change their approach, in order to give greater protection to this special place.
Be a Sizewell Hero and send an email to EDF. We have drafted a message for you raising the issues of most concern to us, but please do personalise your message if you can! You can edit any of the text in black. After you hit send, an email will be submitted to EDF at firstname.lastname@example.org. EDF’s Stage 4 consultations will end on 27 September 2019 but you can send messages and submissions as many times as you like, whenever you like.
