Land East of Eastlands Industrial Estate (LEEIE)

Activity: Site construction

We are undertaking preparatory works to ensure that Sizewell C and associated developments can be built as safely and efficiently as possible.

As part of this preparation, Sizewell C has acquired the land east of Eastlands Industrial Estate, off King George’s Avenue and Lovers Lane  (known locally as Big Field and Little Field), where we plan to provide office accommodation, sidings for the Green Rail Route, and a caravan park when the project commences.

A bell-mouth entrance on to the LEEIE onto King George’s Avenue has been created, followed by ground preparation work to lay the tarmac for the entrance. There will traffic management in place to maintain the safety of the public and workers.

Preparatory works are now underway to create foundations for temporary office accommodation. These works will be the foundation of the development of the LEEIE ahead of the installation of the office and welfare facilities.

  • Installation of the modular office buildings has commenced, but has been slightly delayed by high winds.
  • Work is currently taking place near the entrance on King George’s Avenue to sink a fuel container. Local residents may experience some vibration while this work is taking place. Noise and vibration from the site are carefully monitored and this work is expected to conclude on Tuesday 16 January.
  • Drainage is currently being installed on the site, and this is not expected to generate any excessive noise.

All necessary works will be carried out under supervision of an Ecological Clerk of Works, including surveys for nesting birds, bats and badgers, which will be carried out in accordance with protected species licence conditions where they apply.
