Warrenpoint Port have announced that they will no longer pursue proposals to change how it deals with dredged material following initial studies which indicated that the change could have a detrimental impact on Carlingford Lough.

The port is the fifth largest in Ireland with £6.2billion worth of goods passing through in 2017.

Authorities at the Port had been considering the feasibility of a new placement site in the mouth of Carlingford Lough between Cranfield Point and Greencastle.

The plans will not proceed however, following the initial findings of site surveys.

Clare Guinness, CEO, Warrenpoint Port said “Early results from our site characterisation study have shown the proposal would potentially have an unacceptable detrimental impact on the ecology and aquaculture within the lough.

“Throughout the process, we have been clear that should the scientific research identify the potential for such an impact, then the proposal would go no further.

“We are pleased to deliver on this commitment, in our role as conservators of the marine environment, and will immediately cease pursuit of a revised dredging proposal.”
