SZC Co.'s development consent application for the Sizewell C Project is currently being examined by an Examining Authority.

Throughout the ongoing examination, SZC Co. has continued to engage with the local authorities, landowners and other stakeholder groups, and has had regard to the representations submitted by interested parties to the examination about the application. SZC Co. has also been working with its contractors to develop the proposals to the next level of detail in preparation for implementation, in the event that development consent for the project is granted.

As a result, SZC Co. has identified a potential change to the construction Water Supply Strategy. Before submitting a request to the Examining Authority for this change to the application to be accepted for examination, SZC Co. is consulting on it.

A Consultation Document has been prepared to describe and explain the proposed change, which can be downloaded for free between 3 and 27 August 2021. Further details about the application and the consultation on the proposed change can be found in a notice that can be accessed here.
