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

Stage 3 consultations for Sizewell C & D took place from 4 January to 29 March 2019, and EDF could be applying for planning consent within 12 months. 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. Given the lack of detail in EDF’s proposals, TEAGS has joined other groups in calling for a further stage of consultation.

"The Civic Society chairman Dave Chapple said there were ‘local concerns’ that the occupation rate at the campus was low and ‘that workers do not wish to stay in the hostel and instead choose to seek lodgings in Bridgwater or neighbouring villages’.

...EDF also could not confirm what long term plans there are for the site... stating: “We continue to work in partnership with Sedgemoor District Council to ensure a sustainable legacy for Bridgwater.”

£6/year for Sizewell C&D? If you don't like EDF's proposals that an estimated £6 levy be added to the bill of every UK energy customer, to provide guaranteed income against which the company can borrow capital to build Sizewell C&D (at a total cost of £16 billion), here is what you can do:

* Complain to your energy supplier; Let them know you don't want your bill to rise to pay for Sizewell C, and ask them to convey your message to the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). You can also tweet a complaint to your energy supplier, tagging @edfenergycomms @edfesizewellc @beisgovuk @theresecoffey and @TEAGonSizewell. For a list of UK energy suppliers and basic contacts, see https://www.moneysupermarket.com/gas-and-electricity/suppliers/. A helpful article about how to complain to EDF was published earlier this week by the Daily Telegraph (click below)

* SWITCH! If you are an EDF customer, switch suppliers and make it clear this is in protest against their proposals. Whilst the levy would be for every UK energy customer, not just EDF's, it sends a strong message it they lose your custom.

If you’re like me you’d have heard the 'net zero' news and thought - is this good? Then qucikly googled “what is net zero?” Let's unpack it together.

If you don't like #EDF's idea for £6 on your energy bill to help them build #SizewellC complain to your supplier and - if you are still an EDF customer - SWITCH and tell them why https://t.co/dkmCnsDoxd

@edfenergycomms Looks like you are asking US to make the investment, with your proposal for £6 on every energy users' bill to help pay for #SizewellC. What if people don't want to fund #SZC or prefer that their money support #renewables? @beisgovuk

This is a boondoggle from EDF who want to load risk of #nuclear power onto bill payers to give the illusion of being 'affordable'

If the same deal were offered to #renewables they'd be even cheaper
