Amenity and Accessibility Fund

The Amenity and Accessibility Fund aims to improve the environment and natural character of the area by conserving habitats and species and improving sustainable access to the area.


A Dry Fuel Store (DFS) for spent nuclear fuel has been constructed by EDF Energy at Sizewell B power station, near Leiston.


To offset the impact caused by the delay of the release of that part of the Sizewell B site, which will accommodate the newly consented DFS, EDF Energy, Suffolk County Council and East Suffolk Council agreed to establish an Amenity and Accessibility Fund.


The Fund benefited from an initial one-off payment of £120,000 made by EDF Energy when the DFS construction started, and then further annual payments by EDF of £20,000 for a period of 60 years or until the date of the commencement of decommissioning of the DFS.

The Amenity & Accessibility Fund is now closed for applications.

For information and advice about the Amenity and Accessibility Fund please contact Oka Last at Coast & Heaths AONB for an informal discussion, on 01473 265558 or email.
