Details

On 19 May 2016 Dover Harbour Board submitted an application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) for a marine licence to dredge aggregate from Goodwin Sands.

The project includes the dredging of a maximum total of 3,750,000 tonnes of aggregate within the South Goodwin Sands sandbank system (total area 3.9km2) using trailer suction hopper dredgers to provide material for land reclamation works and berth construction works.

The application was received on 19 May 2016. A public consultation was started on 9 June 2016 and ended on 20 July 2016.

The MMO requested further information from Dover Harbour Board to assess the impacts of the proposed dredging, which has now been received. A further public consultation on this additional information started on 6 October 2016 and ended on 16 November 2016.

The MMO on 20 December 2016 has requested further information from Dover Harbour Board to assess the impacts of the proposed dredging, which has now been received. A further consultation on this additional information started on 17 August 2017 and will end on 28 September 2017.

The application for a marine licence has also been updated to:

  • reduce the volume of material required;
  • reduce the proposed dredge area; and
  • alter the stages of the indicative dredging programme

All relevant documentation, including the updated marine licence application, further information requests and responses and representations received following the first and second consultation period, is available from the MMO marine licensing public register (case reference is MLA/2016/00227).
