Petition to stop dredging at Goodwin Sands


War Hero
I have had a request from the originator of the petition. If anyone has any information, other than what can be found through a basic google search about this area of the sands and its connection with U12 could you please post it here so that I can forward it on?

Many thanks.

done, ups that may be the second time I have signed it, as I am on the 38deg list, but it would have been from home account and different post code?

Thoughtless dredging is bad news. The south Devon village of Hallsands was lost to the sea many years ago due to dredging off Start Point to supply aggregate to Devonport Dockyard.

Ladies and Gents....many thanks for you efforts, signings and sharings etc.
Please see below for a message from the petition coordinator re the final 24 hours:
Dear Supporters,

Although we intend to keep the petiton running to reach our target of 10,000 (and therefore a Government response) the public consultation period for the dredging application licence ends tomorrow Wednesday 20th July.

Please could you use this last 24 hours to spread the word as far and wide as you can. Every extra signature will help show the Marine Management Organisation the high level of national public concern about the environmental damage caused by dredging in general and to the Goodwin Sands in particular.

Thank you all for your fantastic support of this campaign. We will let you know the outcome of the MMO's decision which should be sometime in September.

Many thanks.
