Major Projects

Keep up to date on major projects happening in the Sedgemoor area, including EDF Energy, the National Grid and Northgate.


  • Bridgwater Barrier

    The extensive flooding of the Somerset Levels and Moors in 2012 and between December 2013 and March 2014 has brought into sharp focus the flood risk to Bridgwater and the Somerset Levels and Moors. Communities, businesses, agriculture and the environment rely upon effective flood risk management. The sustainable development of Bridgwater in particular relies upon flood risk infrastructure. The flooding in early 2014 led a partnership of key authorities to prepare 'The Somerset Levels and Moors Flood Action Plan', which was presented to the Secretary of State in March 2014. This identified the critical role a 'tidal barrier or sluice' could play in reducing flood risk.

  • Nuclear Development - Hinkley Point C

  • National Grid's proposed Hinkley Point C Connection

  • Severn Barrage Project

    Plans for a Severn Barrage stretching between Wales and the Somerset coast to harness energy from the tide have been scrutinised by a Government Committee and found wanting.

  • Steart

    At Steart, following the granting of planning permission by Sedgemoor District Council, the Wildlife & Wetlands Trust and the Environment Agency have created one of the UK's largest new wetland reserves which also acts as a coastal defence.
