Plans for nuclear newbuild and life-time extension in France without adequate participation


In France, the public debate on new reactors has started, namely on two reactors in Penly in Normandy.

In cooperation with the NGO RECH (Réaction en Chaîne Humaine) and Nuclear Transparency Watch, we drafted a letter to the responsible French authorities and EC to demand adequate participation in the form of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), also transboundary; this participation concerns both the new construction plans and the lifetime extensions of the old reactor fleet. The letter is published here in French.
