Less than a week after the deadline for registering as an interested party in the upcoming public examination, EDF announced that it was to submit revisions to its proposals. The changes are reported to include making more use of rail and sea to deliver construction materials with an increase in trains and alterations to the proposed beach landing facility. Following the consultation, EDF will formally submit its revised proposals to PINS at the beginning of January which means that the Preliminary Meeting, which was due to take place in late November, will be pushed back into 2021.
SPS joined the StopSizewellC campaign group, the AONB Partnership and other local groups in writing to the Secretary of State raising serious concerns regarding the timing of EDF’s revisions and the impact on the local community.
