Tenby Harbour dredging about to begin

Pembrokeshire County Council said that the latest Tenby Harbour dredging project is set to begin in the following days.

According to the Pembrokeshire County Council, Tenby Harbour and North Beach users are being asked to be aware of heavy moving machinery from Tuesday, March 26th, to Friday, March 29th as dredging work is carried out.

Under the program, sand will be removed from the mouth of the Harbour and deposited at the north end of the beach.

Tenby Harbourmaster, Chris Salisbury, said that a licence for the dredging had been issued after several months of application work.

“We ask that the public please keep clear of the operating area and that dogs are kept on a lead during this time,” Chris added.

Cllr Rhys Sinnett, Cabinet Member for Residents’ Services, added: “I’m grateful to our officers for securing the licence for this work to go ahead. This dredging is essential for the operation of Tenby Harbour.”

“The timing of the work has been governed by the tide and the dates represented the last opportunity for the work to be carried out before the boats are placed back in the water.”
