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

EDF will hold Stage 4 consultations for Sizewell C & D to take place from 18 July to 27 September 2019 – the second set of consultations in six months. EDF aims to apply for planning consent in 2020. 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.

Wait, so EDF is working on a new EPR? But Hinkley is the "old" EPR and Sizewell is suppose to be identical, so does that mean we would be getting the "old" version?

"French nuclear regulator ASN warned state-controlled utility EDF that it may have to review parts of the design of its new nuclear reactor model if it hopes to get clearance to build it."

"One of [Boris's] first decisions after July 23 could be to accept the recommendations of a long-awaited government White Paper aimed at overhauling the energy industry. The document – likely to outline root-and-branch reforms to new nuclear funding and flesh out green energy policies empowering consumers – was due to be published ahead of the summer recess of Parliament.

......Johnson may decide to reject the findings of the Energy White Paper for a lack of ambition on meeting emissions targets. As mayor of London he built a reputation on backing projects like the cycle superhighway and tougher regulations on vehicle pollution, while cutting the congestion charge. He has also backed the UK’s bid to host the UN Climate Change summit in 2020, known as COP 26.

A visionary energy policy could give him the economic platform he needs to hold centre stage, but it won’t be cheap."

The twin inlet tunnels stretching two miles out into the Severn estuary are so big that a double-decker bus could drive through them. The system will cool a new nuclear power station being built at Hinkley Point in Somerset but conservation groups say it will kill up to 250,000 fish a day and must be altered or scrapped.

They say that EDF, the French state-owned energy group, has grossly underestimated the system’s impact on marine life in the estuary, a special conservation area.

Quite a clear message to @edfenergy @edfesizewellc from a @Natures_Voice spokesperson: “The RSPB does not believe that Sizewell is a suitable position for a new nuclear power station." #Loveminsmere #a12 @EADT24 @TEAGonSizewell @theresecoffey https://t.co/vX4sasnmMV

@edfesizewellc But no exhibitions in Theberton or Middleton even though they will be the worst affected. Is it because locals are too angry to talk to?
