The Freight Management Strategy details our plans to deliver 60% of materials by Rail and Sea to reduce the HGV numbers on the roads at the peak of construction.
The Consolidated Transport Assessment details the modelled impact on local roads, shown by road and timings throughout the day and phase of construction.
The Construction Worker Travel Plan shares full details of the plans, including the facilities at the park and rides and enforcement.

SZC Co. cannot directly control the accommodation choices of the workforce; many workers would not be directly employed by SZC Co. and cannot be compelled to live in any given location. However, SZC Co. would assist workers in finding suitable accommodation, both in terms of its type and location.
As set out above, there is a significant stock of homes and bedspaces in the sector – in 2011, there were over 99,000 bedspaces in the area, and based on national and regional average increases this may have since risen to over 128,000. As such, Sizewell C workers are likely to require around 1.2% of all bedspaces in the area. This is well within the overall calculated level of frictional vacancy within the sector, and is therefore expected to be imperceptible at that scale.
The strategy details that:
− Over a third of the workforce are expected to live locally
− Up to 3,000 workers could occupy an accommodation campus and caravan park provided by the Sizewell C Project.
− Around 800 workers would be expected to seek tourist accommodation in a range of types (e.g. serviced, self-catering, caravans) depending on price, location, and availability.
− Around 1,200 workers would be expected to seek tenancies in the private rented sector (similar to levels of private renting during the peak of Sizewell B).
− Around 880 workers are predicted to buy accommodation (owner-occupied sector), including NHB operational staff making a permanent move to the area and workers in long-term construction and support/management roles.
This breakdown is considered to be an upper estimate as it does not include workers seeking spare rooms in existing homes, or in currently unregistered accommodation known as ‘latent accommodation’ – this type of accommodation has proved popular at Hinkley Point C.
