On 8 May 2015 Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MoD), applied to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) for a marine licence to replace the existing Yonderberry Jetty at the Thanckes Oil Fuel Depot. This is located directly opposite the north yard of Her Majesty’s Naval Base (HMNB) Devonport on the banks of the River Tamar.
The application includes a proposed dredge of the seabed around the proposed new jetty with disposal of the material at the Rame Head South disposal site. The proposed date for this activity is 2017-19.
The MMO has now validated the application and is ready to consult on the proposed project. Consultees should note that whilst the current application stipulates that disposal of dredged material will be to Rame Head South the final disposal site will not be agreed until closer to the start of works. The MMO is currently working with all applicants who require disposal licences including the MoD to look into alternative disposal sites in the longer term.
The MMO will consult on any amendments made to the disposal site within the application.
All marine licence applications are available from the marine licensing public register.
