Contractors working for Sizewell C Co are undertaking a programme of surveys.

Starting week commencing Monday 29 March, teams of ecologists will be out doing a variety of ecological surveys, including for bats, great crested newts and breeding birds.

Surveys will take place at a variety of times of day but often very early in the morning and in the evening (including after dark for some bat and great crested newt surveys).

The surveys are taking place on the proposed Sizewell Link Road between the A12 and Theberton.

The surveys will help inform protected species licenses and inform EDF’s mitigation proposals.

The surveys will mainly take place on private land, with the permission of the landowner and most should be completed by late June.

This work does not assume that planning permission will be granted for the Sizewell C Project, as this is currently being considered by the Planning Inspectorate, nor does it indicate work is beginning on the construction of the project.

If you have any questions about this work, please contact the Sizewell C Project Team through the Sizewell C Community Freephone line on 0800 197 6102
