Welcome to the website of Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell [TEAGS].

WHAT YOU CAN DO: Watch our “Sizewell Hero” video below, and then click Take Action to send a message of concern to EDF.

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&D 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 the tiny, peaceful hamlet of Eastbridge, and the route that EDF has chosen for a relief road. 

EDF aims to apply for planning consent in 2020.

Storage! But..... "Royal Dutch Shell has thrown its weight behind a Chinese-backed energy storage venture building what is claimed to be Europe’s largest battery in Wiltshire.

The Anglo-Dutch energy group will use a 100-megawatt battery near the village of Minety to provide back-up electricity to the National Grid when supplies of wind and solar power dip. The battery can be charged when electricity is cheap and then discharged at peak times when prices are high.

The project has been bankrolled by CNIC, the Chinese investment fund, and China Huaneng Group, a state utility company that is also constructing the battery.

The tie-up coincides with growing scrutiny of the involvement of Chinese companies in critical infrastructure projects, such as the Hinkley Point nuclear plant. The government was lambasted by Washington this month for allowing equipment made by Huawei to be used in parts of Britain’s new high-speed 5G mobile phone network."

Somebody can probably translate this more elegantly than Google "Forced shutdown of the power plant, delays in the EPR ... in Flamanville, the nuclear curse. The two reactors at Flamanville, in the English Channel, have not been operating for months. A shutdown ordered by the nuclear gendarme (regulator) who considered the state of the plant worrying."

Annoyed that @NaturalEngland's planned coastal footpath between Aldeburgh and Dunwich will be ruined by #SizewellC, #ScottishPowerRenewables and loads more energy projects? Say so by 25 March. https://t.co/TWq99oq5te

"At 32 hectares the #Sizewell site is significantly smaller than the 45 hectare site at Hinkley Point, fuelling concerns about congestion during construction as well as the environmental impact." https://t.co/W9yHS9zccD

No need for #newnuclear. By 2050 UK is expected to have "83 GW of renewable capacity - enough to meet demand most of the time, with significant surpluses at times." https://t.co/moiIFW8Rbj

Hope you will continue to investigate the cumulative impact of all the energy projects planned in East Suffolk and the devastating effect this will have on this community. https://t.co/qjCOcWeQRd

"Most alarmed are British residents, whose government is currently planning new seaside nuclear stations in low-lying coastal areas. Some will be under water this century according to the EEA, particularly one planned for Sizewell in eastern England." https://t.co/NZn8yH0dCj
