UK: application submitted to Cowes Harbour Commissioners to dredge marinaNews // January 17, 2017
An application has been submitted to Cowes Harbour Commissioners by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) seeking to secure consent to complete dredging, construction and associated works for the proposed Kingston Marine Park boat hoist and lay-by pontoons.
The proposed site is south of the commercial wharves in the River Medina. The operation involves a capital dredge to create an area with improved tidal access, to be used in conjunction with a hoist dock to facilitate boat construction and maintenance at Kingston Marine Park.
A variation to the original consented Marine Licence has been applied for from the Marine Management Organisation. This will involve the installation of a hoist dock and lay-by pontoons, again in order to facilitate boat construction and maintenance at Kingston Marine Park.
The application is open for consultation until 10 February 2017. Any comments must be submitted before this date to the Harbour Master. These can be submitted in writing to the Harbour Office, Town Quay, Cowes, PO31 7AS. Emails should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
