The Government has approved plans for Sizewell C, the proposed new nuclear power station that will affect our nature reserve at Minsmere.
Beccy Speight, Chief Executive Officer RSPB, said “It is extremely disappointing to learn that the Government has approved plans for the proposed Sizewell C power station.
“We are dismayed that the decision by this interim Government goes against the advice of the Examiners and their own experts in this matter.
“The construction of the proposed development will be damaging and it has been granted with insufficient consideration for the effects on nature as described by the governments own experts. This is a ludicrous decision for an interim government to make.
“We will be fully reviewing the reasons for the decision and will consider our options. We thank everyone who has supported and worked with us throughout the planning process and we will continue to do all we can for Minsmere and Suffolk’s important wildlife.”
