Maldon district: Campaigners ready to fight plans for new nuclear power station
3:00pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
Anti-nuclear campaigners are up in arms following claims China is eyeing a deal to build a new power station in Bradwell.
The rumour comes as China General Nuclear Power Group looks set to rescue a deal between the Government and EDF Energy over the £14billion nuclear project at Hinkley Point, in Somerset.
According to reports, the state-controlled company will take a stake in the project in an attempt to secure a nuclear foothold in Britain, with a view to building its own reactors on other sites, namely Bradwell.
Val Mainwood, a coordinator for Bradwell for Renewable Energy (BRARE), said: “People living right across the area are obviously anxious about what’s going to happen."
