Councillor Lagan read out his Motion (as set out below):


 “Although the Council initially supported (in principle) a new nuclear power station at Bradwell on sea, a greater level of information is now available, and it is appropriate to reconsider its position.  Grave concerns are raised regarding a new nuclear power at Bradwell on Sea, due to the local environmental impacts, the loss of heritage assets and ecological harm.



That the Council will review the LDP to reconsider this position at the next planned review.”
