Carlingford Lough Proposed Placement Site

Warrenpoint Port is inviting members of the public and other stakeholders to give their views on new plans to change how dredged material from the harbour is dealt with.

It is proposed to place material 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 between Cranfield Point and Greencastle, including marine ecology and sediment surveys, geophysical surveys, and hydrodynamic and sediment transport modelling.

The views of stakeholders are important to help the Port and its consultants guide these studies and identify measures that should be considered to avoid or reduce any negative impacts.

A public drop-in consultation event, originally planned to take place on Wednesday 19th September, was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions. A new date for the event will be advertised in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, comments on the proposed scheme may be made by contacting to
