""The new pontoon is required to improve access to the lifeboat and, since the area is also currently used for mooring ABP’s pilot boats, to provide a temporary berth for a pilot boat in calm conditions.
The pontoon is located at a site exposed to south easterly waves, necdotally predicted at over 2m wave height. The high tidal range has precluded the use of a brow or a piled solution. Silt and mud regularly accumulate at the site. The site will be dredged by UK dredging prior to installation of the pontoon. Annual maintenance
dredging will also be undertaken by UK Dredging.
