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.

"Last year, a leading US security official reportedly warned the government against developing a close relationship with Chinese contractors, on the grounds that civil nuclear technology was being adapted for military use. Some experts believe the involvement of Rolls Royce will help to allay concerns about the security of the Bradwell project."

Auntie drops a bombshell on nuclear plant
By Emily Gosden, Energy Editor "The Times"

"As Hitachi’s Horizon venture last week became the second UK nuclear project to implode, EDF was keen to keep its distance. The French company is building the only plant to get the go-ahead, at Hinkley Point in Somerset, and stressed it was “on track”. Sadly for EDF, Any Answers asked the BBC Radio 4 faithful at the weekend for their views on “the nuclear plant at Hinkley Point that may now never happen”. Do they know something we don’t?"

Front page of today's FT: "

"China’s largest state-backed nuclear company is in talks with Rolls-Royce about supplying equipment for the power plant it hopes to build in Essex as it seeks to allay national security concerns about the project.

CGN is in discussions with the British engineering group over providing the control systems for the Hualong HPR1000 reactors the Chinese group plans to install at Bradwell on the Essex coast. Regarded as the central nervous system of a nuclear power plant, this technology not only drives the operation of the reactor, but allows it to be safely shut down should problems occur......

.... Peter Atherton, an industry expert at consultancy Cornwall Energy, said....“On the one hand they want Chinese nuclear investment in order to provide competition to the French but on the other hand there are very obvious security issues,” he said. “If the government doesn’t trust China to build mobile telecom networks how on earth can they trust them to build nuclear power stations?”
