Bradwell B Consultation
deadline extended

In light of the current situation with Covid-19, and the need to curtail face-to-face consultation events, the decision has been made to extend the Bradwell B consultation by 5 weeks, allowing more time for the community to engage with the proposals and provide feedback. The new end date for our Stage One consultation will be Wednesday 1st July 2020.

We are also pleased to announce innovative additional ways to engage online and via phone, including an interactive version of our main consultation document, and a virtual version of our public exhibition events.

Have your say on Bradwell B

The Bradwell B project is pleased to be holding its first stage of consultation on proposals for a new nuclear power station at Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex.

Bradwell B would build on the long-established history of nuclear power in the area, creating long-term employment opportunities, tens of thousands of jobs during construction, and significant business and training opportunities.

Once operational, the new station would generate enough electricity to power about four million homes, making an important contribution to the UK’s future low carbon energy needs.

Consultation with local residents, communities, businesses and organisations is important to the way we shape our plans for Bradwell B.

The responses and feedback from this consultation, along with further technical and environmental studies, will inform the development of the proposals ahead of a Stage Two consultation.

This website contains copies of all the consultation documents and information required to provide feedback on our Stage One proposals. The deadline for responding to this consultation is 11:59pm on Wednesday 1st July 2020.

How does the consultation process work?

We are currently consulting with you as part of our Stage 1 consultation. Once we have reviewed all the comments we receive we will have another, more detailed, stage of consultation.  Overall the period during which we will consult before we submit an application for development consent will take several years. Any application for Bradwell B would then be considered under the Development Consent Order (DCO) process. This is a special type of planning application for significant infrastructure projects, where an independent inspector is appointed to review the application. At the end of this process, which can take up to 18 months, the inspector issues a recommendation to the government, who will make the final decision on whether to grant consent.

The videos below explain the application process in more detail. You can also hear from members of our team about why it’s important for you to feedback. You can also view a flythrough video of our proposals.
