Dover Western Docks Revival Project: Potential Impact on Training

More information on the project can be found here.

We have hear from Dover Channel Training the following:

  • 30th March to mid May - dredge to remove soft sediments
  • May & June - Piling Berths A&C
  • July & August - Piling Navigation Cut and Marina Curve
  • Piling work is outside the zone that we swim in 
  • PILING WORK IS VERY NOISY, it also causes significant vibrations
  • Work takes place from 8am-6pm on weekdays and 8am to 2pm on Saturdays.  No activity will take place on Sundays or Bank Holidays

DCT hopes to meet with the Harbour Board in the next couple of weeks once they have received details from their sub-acoustic investigation. To be fair to the Harbour Board, they recognise us as important users of the harbour and are keen to work together to minimise the impact and ensure safe swimming. Unfortunately this work does need to go ahead to support the Dover revival project, so we do need to accept that.
