We are pleased to note that the Planning Inspectorate has accepted the Sizewell C planning application for examination. The decision means the Inspectorate is satisfied that the 8 years of public consultation by the project was conducted properly and that full examination of the proposals can now take place.
If approved, Sizewell C will deliver resilient low carbon power to 6million homes. It will provide a vital boost to jobs, skills, education and training for decades to come while helping to tackle the climate crisis.
A summary of the proposals will be made available on the Sizewell C website and a newsletter will be sent to local people in the coming days which will outline all the ways we will help the public take part in the planning process. A copy of the full planning application and supporting documents are available on the Planning Inspectorate website.
The timing is right to start the process for the public to be able to view the planning application with new guidelines in place for social distancing. We will ensure they have every opportunity to read the planning application for this project which will leave a positive legacy for years to come.
