A temporary new visitor facility is to be established at Sizewell B nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast after EDF Energy received planning approval for the project.
Parsons Brinckerhoff are behind the design of the £500,000 centre, which will operate for four years until a permanent replacement can be developed at the site near Leiston.
An existing mobile cabin building to the north of the site is to house the visitor centre, which forms part of EDF Energy's drive to improve public access at its eight nuclear power stations.
Sizewell B director Jim Crawford said: "EDF Energy is committed to improving the transparency and openness surrounding our nuclear operations.
"This visitor centre will allow us to introduce people to our operation at Sizewell B power station in a safe, informative and attractive environment."
