Sizewell is a village located between the coastal towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh. It is dominated by Sizewell B nuclear power station and – depending on decisions that will be made within the next few years – it has the prospect of Sizewell C. This will potentially generate substantial numbers of jobs, some of them construction-related.
East Suffolk Council will support investment at Sizewell by:
Exploring the potential economic benefits of Sizewell C and then putting in place a plan to ensure that these are fully captured, drawing on the experience of similar investments elsewhere (e.g. Hinkley Point)
Supporting the operations of Sizewell B, particularly in relation to labour market and skills issues.
