New Anglia LEP welcomes submission of application for Sizewell C

EDF Energy submitted its Development Consent Order application for Sizewell C, a new nuclear power station in Suffolk, on 27 May 2020.

The construction of a new nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast would create 25,000 employment opportunities and 1,000 apprenticeships, as well as bringing a huge economic boost to the local area.

New Anglia LEP Chief Executive Chris Starkie said: “We welcome the decision by EDF Energy to submit its planning application.

“The planning process will now give EDF Energy the opportunity to make its case for the project and for supporters and objectors to be heard.

“New Anglia LEP is keen to see the project proceed with the maximum benefits for local businesses and workers and to cause the minimum disruption for residents and the tourism sector. We believe this can be achieved if EDF Energy responds positively to the concerns of local residents.

“We are also calling on EDF Energy to set an ambitious target for the value of contracts of £2bn awarded to businesses from Suffolk and Norfolk.”
