Since the submission of the application in May 2020, we have responded to ongoing feedback and have proposed changes to the project plans. This is a normal part of the process and any changes are subject to consultation before being submitted to PINS. The latest change relates to our Construction Water Supply Strategy. Clean water from a dependable source will be required from the earliest stages of construction. While our planning application includes proposals to access water from a permanent water main, ongoing work has identified a need for more flexibility in construction water supply in the early years. The construction and operation of Sizewell C, including this proposed change to our construction Water Supply Strategy, will not impact the local supply of drinking water.
The attached newsletter provides a general project update and background on this issue.
A Consultation Document has been prepared to describe and explain the proposed changes. For further information and to download the consultation document (available between the 3rd and 27th of August) follow the link below.
