2015 November - AONB special qualities document:
This document sets out the Natural Beauty and Special Qualities of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).  It has been developed by EDF Energy, as part of their preparatory work for the proposed Sizewell C, in consultation and agreement with the AONB Partnership, Suffolk Coastal District Council and Suffolk County Council.  It follows a rigorous criteria based approach, building on the existing Natural England process for the designation of protected landscapes.

It forms an important part of the baseline to help inform the design of the proposed development and against which to judge the effects of the proposed development on the protected landscape and its special qualities, but clearly will be of significant wider benefit to the AONB Partnership in articulating what is characteristic and special about this nationally important landscape.
