RSPB react to Sizewell C decision delay

Friday 8 July 2022

The government's decision on whether or not to allow Sizewell C to be built has been delayed, despite the RSPB's calls to protect the wildlife that calls RSPB Minsmere, and the surrounding area, home.

The RSPB’s operations director for central and eastern England, Jeff Knott said: “A delay of two weeks to the decision on whether to build a new nuclear power station at Sizewell makes little sense considering the current political turmoil. Committing future Governments to spending billions of pounds of taxpayers money on a potentially hugely damaging project like Sizewell C is not a decision that a caretaker government should even consider let alone make. Pushing through something as contentious as Sizewell C, with no reference to wider energy and nature policy strategies is frankly ludicrous.”
