Welcome to the website of Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell [TEAGS].
EDF’s plans to build two new nuclear reactors at Sizewell in east Suffolk will have a devastating impact on this unique and magical place, and especially on the villages of Theberton and Eastbridge and the local environment. The construction of Sizewell C must not be allowed to destroy the lives of local residents, or the qualities that make this area of Suffolk, and the Minsmere Reserve, so special and so popular with visitors: the peace, tranquility, dark night skies, beautiful landscapes, fragile coastline and rich wildlife.
We oppose the building of what is effectively a new town for 2,400 construction workers so close to Minsmere and only 300 yards from the tiny, peaceful hamlet of Eastbridge, and believe that the B1122 – a winding country road – is not fit to carry up to 900 construction lorries each day through Theberton. A dedicated relief road is necessary, to reduce the impact on residents, visitors and listed buildings, and allow proper emergency evacuation.

Looking ahead to @edfehinkleyc @TEAGonSizewell visit. Proposed @edfesizewellc single 2400 person campus to dominate tiny #hamlet & #AONB compared to #HPC strategy, 500 adjacent to site & rest 4-16km away in towns & on brownfield #meaningfulengagement https://t.co/PJoWpzgOJG
#dumping of @edfehinkleyc excess material in Cardiff Bay delayed. #dumpinginthesea or #spoilheaps proposed @edfesizewellc 2nd consult impact #environment & #localcommunities. Much better plans needed ahead of #SZC 3rd consult & @PINSgov decisions. @beis https://t.co/2PJl8CWEbl
Interesting to hear how excavated material will be managed for proposed @edfesizewellc project 35m high #spoilheaps are proposed as stores for excess material. With a max local spot height locally of 6m this will impact the environment and community. https://t.co/uPC5VuzK4D
To allow civil construction to begin for the pump house, almost 190,000m3 of earth was excavated over the past year in this area of site alone. The pump house will contain cooling water systems and supporting systems such as filtration and ventilation. https://t.co/c3fu7hJxB9
