Despite SPS joining with local councils and local campaign groups in calling for a delay to the process, EDF’s application for Sizewell C to proceed to Examination has now been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate.

SPS had urged both EDF and the Planning Inspectorate to delay this process until Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted to allow full participation from the community in this process.

Once documents are available on the Planning Inspectorate website SPS expects to register as an interested party as the next part of the process. This will run from 8 July to 30 September.

SPS position on Sizewell C is available here.
