ABPmer to Support CEMEX Licence Application

ABPmer, a specialist in marine environmental impact assessment (EIA), has been commissioned by CEMEX to undertake an EIA and prepare the associated Environmental Statement for proposed marine aggregate extraction from an area on the south coast.

Dredging to extract aggregates – sand, gravel, and other marine minerals – from the English seabed needs a marine licence and a separate permission from the landowner. Such licences usually require an EIA.

“We will be preparing the EIA scoping, pre-application and final environmental statement,” said Natalie Frost, Planning and Licensing Business Development Manager at ABPmer.

Wessex Archaeology is assisting us by undertaking a desk based marine archaeology assessment, as well as geophysical and geotechnical assessments.”

Marine aggregate licences are issued for a specific quantity of material to be extracted and for a specific duration, usually 15 years.
