A Development Consent Order application for a new nuclear power station at Sizewell was submitted by EDF in May 2020. 

Conversations with the local authorities, communities and residents have continued and improved proposals have been borne out of those discussions. As a result, there is an ongoing 30-day public consultation on these material changes - from Wednesday 18 November to Friday 18 December.

How Sizewell C is protecting the environment

We want Sizewell C to be an exemplar of how industry and environment can coexist peacefully when sensitively developed and managed.

Nuclear is absolutely vital to tackling the climate emergency and as has been proved in the operation of Sizewell A and B, wildlife can thrive around the power stations.

Sizewell C, a proposed new nuclear power station in Suffolk, has the potential to generate the reliable low carbon electricity the country needs for decades to come. It will also make a lasting positive difference to the economy in the east of England.

The project is being developed by EDF, together with our long-standing partners CGN. Our joint experience of working together on a range of projects, including constructing two EPR reactors at Taishan in China, is bringing direct benefits to Hinkley Point C and will do the same for the Sizewell C project. Additionally, this partnership has plans to develop Bradwell B in Essex.
