Sizewell Parishes Liaison Group
Sizewell Parishes Liaison Group

In 2008 the Middleton Village Plan Group invited the Station Director of Sizewell B to a public meeting to consider the community impact of New Build reactors at the site. The results of that public meeting were recorded in the Village Plan. It was obvious at that meeting that the impact on the local communities would be significant –also evident that individual Parish Councils would have very little chance of making their needs and views heard. An informal meeting was held in January 2009 with other Parish & Town Councils. The meeting decided to form a group specifically to look at the impact on local communities of future development at Sizewell. All Town and Parish Councils within the Leiston High School catchment area were invited to send representatives.

It is important to know

The group is non confrontational and has no agenda with nuclear power - when the development at Sizewell takes place we aim to encourage the best possible outcome for the local communities. Our constitution specifically states the aims –“To act as a coordinating group – to encourage investment by EDF and Government in the Local infrastructure“ When Sizewell B was constructed there was limited liaison with local authorities. The timing of the New build programme at Sizewell is dependent upon which site in is chosen first. Meanwhile, SPLG intends to participate in the Planning and Environmental Impact Assessment consultations.
