JUNE DATE FOR GOODWIN SANDS HIGH COURT REVIEW

Campaigners against plans by the Port of Dover to dredge the Goodwin Sand are now preparing for a High Court hearing in June. It takes the form of a judicial review of the Marine Management Organisation's decision to allow the dredging and will be at the London court on Wednesday 5 June.

The pressure group Goodwin Sands SOS fear removing the sands will disturb war graves and damage the environment. They say that the government's Marine Management Organisation's permission, given last July, failed to consider the impact of the physical removal of the volume of sand from a designated ‘protected feature’ in a proposed Marine Conservation Zone and only considered the impact of removing the surface area of the subtidal sand.

The Port of Dover needs to use the some of the sands in the Channel off Deal in its redevelopment of Dover Western Docks. It maintains the dredging involves removing three million tonnes of aggregate - some 0.22% of the sandbanks. Aquiring material from further afield would have a serious impact on the cost of the scheme.   (March 29, 2019)
