The Government is proposing to build a new nuclear power station at Sizewell. I am working hard to make sure that Suffolk Coastal reaps the benefits this opportunity will bring in terms of new high skilled jobs, education opportunities and infrastructure investment.
I sit on the Joint Local Authority Group (JLAG) and the Sizewell Stakeholders Group (SSG). These are designed to make sure that local people's voices are taken into account when considering the construction phase of the project and the legacy it will bring.
I also chair the Suffolk Energy Coast Delivery Board which aims to maximise the economic benefits that new energy projects like Sizewell C will bring to the area.
