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.

Update - Wylfa Newydd developer DENIES reports that US construction giant has withdrawn from building the nuclear plant. Horizon Nuclear Power has described the claims about US firm Bechtel as 'categorically untrue', see - https://www.dailypost.co.uk/business/business-news/wylfa-newydd-developer-denies-reports-15045040.amp.

Asahi Shimbun writes: “Major U.S. construction firm Bechtel Corp. is to withdraw from its key role in building a nuclear power plant in Britain due to concerns over the Hitachi Ltd.-helmed project’s profitability, sources said Aug. 16. Bechtel made the decision based on its assessment that the drastic rise in construction costs would make it hard to make money on the project, the sources said. The withdrawal deals a blow to Tokyo-based Hitachi, which lacks experience in nuclear power plant construction. The conglomerate could now face further difficulties in financing the project”

Interesting development in funding of #Hitachi #nuclear build in UK. #Bechtel pulls out over #profitability concerns among other concerns @beisgovuk https://t.co/5OInnIKf1J

Just a shame that the AONB is spoiled by those ugly great #sizewell power stations splitting it in two. Soon to be even uglier! @TEAGonSizewell https://t.co/evGP1eyJuE

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
