Contractors working for Sizewell C Co (the company that has submitted the proposals to build the Sizewell C power station) will be undertaking a programme of surveys over the next fortnight.

They previously contacted the Parish Council when topographical surveys were carried out on the proposed route for the Sizewell Link Road in March this year.

This is the next stage of their programme of work.

From Monday, 17 May, topographical survey will be carried out on the land along the route of the proposed Sizewell Link Road. The survey is non-intrusive (there is no digging).

Each survey team will comprise of two surveyors using a tripod mounted measuring tool and handheld sighting rods.

The surveys will take place on private land, so should not cause any inconvenience to general public or cause any disruption to traffic.

The work will begin next to the A12, just north of Kelsale on Monday, 17 May, then move in an easterly direction to the proposed Sizewell C site, finishing on Friday, 28 May.

The work will be carried out during daylight hours (between 7am and 6pm). No overnight or weekend working is planned at this time.

If the plans for the proposed Sizewell C power station are approved, they will try to provide a combination of road and rail improvements in the hope of reducing construction traffic, but no firm agreements are in place.

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

They say they intend to keep the inconvenience or disruption to people in the area to a minimum!

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.

Please help to keep them honest and resport via the telephone number above, any instances of inconvenience or delays you may encounter.
