Comment:

Unit 56

Under Agreement started 2018

Visited with EDF Energy, BNP Parabas and Freedom and Fishing fleet members. Work is being carried out to clear long-term fishing equipment and rubbish. This is making a clear difference to the Unit and the Favourable Condition. The areas cleared will now be incorporated into the vegetated shingle management and be left to recover with warden input to manage visitor pressures.

Discussed the visitor pressures across the Unit and site management and wardening and improvements/management of boardwalks, interpretation across the site.

These subjects have been discussed over the months via phone calls and emails.

Comment: The consent for the extraction of shingle from the shoreline at the Dungeness Borrow Pit ended in August 2007. There is no current consent from Kent County Council for this operation. Natural coastal processes are now operating again and the accretion on the eastern shoreline is uninterrupted. The accretion allows for the build up of the new ridges that will support the early successional phases of the vegetated shingle, as well as allowing continued transport of shingle northwards to other frontages.
Number of adverse condition reasons: 2
