Clare Guinness, CEO, Warrenpoint Port said: “We are pleased to announce a new date for the public to join with us at Warrenpoint Town Hall to find out more about proposals for a new placement site for dredged material.

“We are also extending the closing date for comments on this stage of the consultation process to 31st October.

“In our role as a custodian of the marine environment, we want to hear the views of all stakeholders before any plans are put into action.”

It is proposed that dredged material, is placed at a site in the mouth of Carlingford Lough between Cranfield Point and Greencastle.

A number of surveys, studies and assessments will be undertaken to determine the suitability of the location, the results of which will be made publicly available and will be subject to further public consultation.

The public drop-in event will be attended by staff from Warrenpoint Port and its consultants Royal HaskoningDHV.
