80 thousand cubic meters of broads muck is one hell of a lot of stuff to get rid of.

Could not the development of the old Pegasus yard have been used as dumping ground as I believe the planning authority required that they increase their level above mean water?

Dredged materials are classified as a ‘Waste’ under the Environment Agencies Waste Classification criteria and as such they cannot just be placed anywhere.

The Broads Authority current policy is to look to reuse the sediments in a sustainable manner and over the last few years we have developed innovative techniques  to use the dredged materials for habitat creation (Duck Broad & Salhouse Broad), spreading onto agricultural land for benefits to farming or for crest raising current flood defences.

The land at Pegasus was not an option for sediment disposal.
