Meeting on Goodwin Sands Marine Licence Application This Week

An open meeting on the Port of Dover’s Marine Licence Application (MLA) to dredge the Goodwin Sands will be held on Thursday, 14th July, at Discovery Park ‘The Gateway’ venue.

At the meeting, Jack Goodhew, Port of Dover’s Special Projects Manager, will provide an update on the application.

He will be joined by John Baugh and Dave Brew who will be on hand to discuss coastal processes.

The Port of Dover application, supported by evidence contained in its detailed 1,500 page Environmental Statement, to dredge aggregate from the South Goodwin Sands for the DWDR development has concluded the following:

Thorough environmental studies:

  • Completed by world class consultants.

Small proportion to be taken:

  • 0.22% of the total volume leaving over 99.7% untouched.

No coastal impacts:

  • Wave heights, tidal current velocities, coastal erosion;
  • Modeled on 160% of required extraction.

Option with the least overall environmental impact.
