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

The process of engaging with local parish councils, local authorities, environmental organisations, local stakeholder groups and the public has continued since submission. We have identified opportunities for changing our Application to further minimise impacts on the local area. 

There is an ongoing consultation on these minor changes to our Application - from Friday 11 June to Midday Monday 12 July.

Sizewell C and 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.
