October 12th 2018

Dear Goodwin Sands SOS supporter,


Today, Friday 12th October 2018 at 11 am we are launching a fund raising appeal to help us prepare our case for a Judicial Review of the Marine Management Organisation’s decision to grant Dover Harbour Board a dredging licence.  The link to our CrowdJustice page is here:


Personal appeals to the Government from endurance swimmer and UN Patron of the Oceans, Lewis Pugh, for the licence decision to be reviewed have not, as yet, borne fruit.  The discovery of an apparent WWII bomber near the dredging area has also been met with a wall of total silence.  We have therefore decided we must take the small window of opportunity available to us to lodge a claim for a Judicial Review.


We need to be clear: if this licence is allowed to stand, it will not be the last.The long-term impacts dredging will have on both our marine environment and our underwater cultural heritage are profound and mustn’t be underestimated.


So, please pledge what you can today and share this link with anyone you think will support us.


Thank you very much.


Regards,  Joanna and Fiona
