Students and lecturers from the University of Suffolk are helping Sizewell C understand what local people think of the latest consultation for the proposed power station.

The University was awarded the contract to conduct exit interviews at consultation exhibitions currently running across East Suffolk.  So far 2,500 people have come to the exhibitions to find out more and to see the changes made since the last round of consultation.

The exit interviews measure how easy people find it to get and understand the information being presented. This helps the Sizewell C team ensure local people can access all the details they need to provide feedback as part of the planning process.

Dr Will Thomas, Professor at the University of Suffolk, said:  “The Sizewell C exhibitions are a great way for our students to get real experience in conducting research for an industry on our doorstep.  The timing has worked really well as the students are just about to embark on their module on research later this term.”

Jim Crawford, Sizewell C project development director, said:  “It’s great to be able to use a local university to conduct this important research. The exhibitions have been really busy and we want to be sure that people are getting the information they need.”
