In reaction to the publication of the Climate Change Committee’s report, “Delivering a reliable decarbonised power system”, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:
“The CCC is right that we urgently need planning reform to get critical infrastructure like new nuclear built more quickly. Sizewell C has taken 50% longer to consent than Hinkley, with thousands more pages of supporting documentation required, even though it’s a replica project. That’s unacceptable. It’s time for the Government to cut the red tape and inject some pace into our drive for energy security and net zero.”
