WARRENPOINT PORT CEASES REVISED DREDGING PROPOSAL
Warrenpoint Port will no longer pursue proposals to change how it deals with dredged material.
Authorities at the Port had been considering the feasibility of a new placement site in the mouth of Carlingford Lough between Cranfield Point and Greencastle.
The plans will not proceed however, following the initial findings of site surveys.
Clare Guinness, CEO, Warrenpoint Port said:
“Early results from our site characterisation study have shown the proposal would potentially have an unacceptable detrimental impact on the ecology and aquaculture within the lough.
“Throughout the process, we have been clear that should the scientific research identify the potential for such an impact, then the proposal would go no further.
“We are pleased to deliver on this commitment, in our role as conservators of the marine environment, and will immediately cease pursuit of a revised dredging proposal.”
A copy of the findings of the site characterisation study is available to view at www.warrenpointport.com/in-lough-placement.
