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.

Gregory Jaczko served on the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission from 2005 to 2009, and as its chairman from 2009 to 2012. He was a strong advocate of nuclear power for its low carbon credentials and, at that time pre-Fukushima, for its relative safety, although those who have watched Chernobyl recently are probably seriously shocked at how easily the outcome from that disaster could have been so different. After many years of defending nuclear power and with the significant reduction in costs of solar and wind renewable energy and storage he now believes that he risks to the welfare of people living close to these plants and the cost balance has changed sufficiently to dedicate the rest of his career to promoting renewable energy.

Good to see new East Suffolk Council leader Steve Gallant including the environment as one of the priorities in his maiden speech: “Regarding the environment, this council needs to consider its role on environmental initiatives or else it will lose touch with the citizens of the future. Every worldwide environmental issue is also a Local environmental issue and regardless of any legal obligation have a responsibility to help the community to adapt to the effects of climate change.

“We need to understand that the potential impacts of climate change on the frequency of adverse events, water security, coastal communities and natural ecosystems are so serious that shutting our eyes to the effects would represent poor stewardship on our part.”
