Goodwin Sands SOS

Save our Goodwin Sands from dredging

DOVER HARBOUR BOARD INTENDS TO DREDGE THE FAMOUS GOODWIN SANDS FOR MARINE AGGREGATE – AND ONLY WE CAN STOP THEM.

Over a three-year period, this corporation wants to dredge 2.5 million cubic metres of sand and gravel to regenerate Dover’s Western Docks. That’s exactly the same volume as the Pyramid of Giza in Egypt – one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Why? Simply, because the Goodwins are the cheapest option. However, dredging the sands will damage our national heritage and natural environment.  It will also disturb the maritime graves of thousands of mariners and scores of brave young pilots from the Battle of Britain.

The further public consultation period has now finished but the campaign team will still be working hard behind the scenes.

The MOD are now taking the matter of potential contravention of the Protection Military Remains Act 1986 by Dover Harbour Board very seriously and we are in constant liaison with them.The petition is still open so do please keep sharing it and encouraging your friends, their friends and their friends’ friends to sign it too!.

We will keep you all updated on progress and in the meantime, thank you everyone for your continued support. We wouldn’t have got this far without you.
