Through surveys conducted by our consultants and guidance from Suffolk Coastal District Council, we have identified the areas that are to be considered as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
This is ongoing at present. Both construction and operation phases will be considered and the findings will be reported in our Environmental Statement that will accompany our planning application. The areas covered will be comprehensive to include:
- Amenity and Recreation
- Noise and Vibration
- Historic Environment
- Land Quality
- Flood Risk
The removal of Coronation Wood would be required as part of our proposals. The wood is over 100 years old but is poor in quality and ecological value. The wood is within our Nuclear Site Licence boundary and its development will allow important buildings to sit close to the main power station complex. As part of our proposals we look to provide replacement planting elsewhere.
