  1. Had an interesting conversation recently with an old guy who'd retired from the environmental agency.
    He agreed that dredging stretches of certain rivers was stopped years ago - why ??
    Apparently an EU decree outlawed ALL dredging with the goal of letting nature do her stuff ...
    Obviously the government jumped on the bandwagon - saved them millions !!
    So now we're out of Europe maybe they'll have a rethink ??

    Probably not...

    Just thought I'd mention it .

    I think that was a little leg pulling by the ex EA guy.I know for a fact there was no ban on river dredging. The EU did decide not to dredge some rivers for the protection of wildlife in certain places, but they never banned it, and they certainly don’t have the right to ban dredging in any country, but it did try to regulate dredging and the disposal of dredged material which is only reasonable given the environmental damage the spurious dumping of millions of tons of sludge and gravel can cause.

  6. He was very convincing and the EU masterplan would explain a distinct lack of dredging over the
    years .
    I did enquire about the disposal of river sludge but he pointed out the coal slag heaps were acceptable so why not sludge - good point :thinking:
