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

EDF launched Stage 3 Consultations on 4 January 2019.

  • Read our press reaction here. 
  • Come to our Public Meeting on 23 February, 10am at Theberton Church: details in the side-panel above left or on Facebook
  • Watch our new 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 whilst we support the principle of a relief road, we are not yet convinced EDF has chosen the best route. A single bypass of Theberton is not sufficient, regardless of how many freight trains can be used.

"Such failures [Wylfa and Moorside] highlight one issue with a new nuclear project, explains Simon Taylor, an economist with the Energy Policy Research Group in Cambridge: ‘[It] is extremely expensive and it involves a lot of risk.’ The RAB model raises an important issue for the energy industry. ‘Why not use that vehicle to make all sorts of other technologies cheaper?’ asks Jim Watson, director of the UK Energy Research Centre. ‘The question … is why are you giving special treatment to one technology?’ Watson cites carbon capture and storage or the proposed tidal lagoon power plant in Swansea, UK, as capital-intensive technologies that could have benefited from RAB. Watson goes on to state that the government needs to be clear on what its strategic case is for nuclear: ‘In the end, you may be asking consumers to pay more for this technology versus others.’ "

George Osborne's "golden era" included visiting East Turkestan (Xinjiang) on the anniversary of the detention of Uyghur scholar Ilham Tohti, and saying Not. One. Word.

Not serious questions if you read the article, but obviously it's not good news for EDF

@boomsbustsshow If the construction materials could be delivered by sea, or if it had a proper relief road rather than the one EDF has proposed, or if the 2,400 workers' accommodation was dispersed rather than dumped on a tiny hamlet.

@boomsbustsshow TEAGS isn't opposed to Sizewell C in principle, but that doesn't mean it's OK for EDF to ride roughshod over communities and the environment to build it. There are better ways of doing it.

I'm still worried about @edfesizewellc but is Suffolk Coastal council doing enough to represent its voters? https://t.co/0xnvOqO0EO

"I got the distinct feeling that this [Suffolk Coastal District Council] was an authority preparing to go into delicate negotiations with EDF by being ready to lie down and have its tummy tickled by the big energy company."
