Together Against Sizewell C (TASC) is an unincorporated citizens’ group formed to oppose the building of Sizewell C’s twin nuclear reactors and associated works in Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in a legal open, peaceful and fully accountable manner. TASC has mounted a legal challenge against East Suffolk Council’s decision to approve the planning application submitted by EDF, the nuclear developer, to: – chop down 100-year-old Coronation Wood, turn a large area of priority habitat acidic grassland, known as Pillbox Field, into a 576 space car park, relocate over 320,000 sq. feet of 7 largely non-essential and non-operational Sizewell B buildings and an additional 128 car parking spaces, that will encroach further into the AONB. Most of these buildings/facilities could be located outside the AONB. The works are needed to free up land for the construction of Sizewell C as the existing site is too small and are clearly integral to the wider Sizewell C development.

Campaigners opposing a new nuclear power station are seeking a judicial review over a “premature” decision to allow woodland to be felled. EDF Energy wants to build two reactors next to Sizewell B in Suffolk and in September was told it could chop down Coronation Wood on the site. Together Against Sizewell C (Tasc) said the area was vital for wildlife. East Suffolk Council said it would respond to the campaigners’ challenge in due course.
