Montrose Harbour and Aberdeen Harbour marine licences: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Information requested

Marine Licence 00009326 Montrose Harbour

I note the UKD Marlin has been recently dredging Montrose Harbour around 8/5/22.

I note from the above licence that dredging is not permitted from 1/4/22 to 31/5/22 unless a mitigation plan has been agreed with the Scottish Ministers.

The UKD Orca also carried out dredging just prior to 1/4/22 and I am surprised the necessary dredging could not have been completed then,outwith the above period..

Could you please send me a suitably redacted copy of the mitigation plan agreed with the Scottish Ministers.


I enclose a copy of most of the information you requested.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exception under Regulation 11(2) (personal information of a third party) of the EIRs apply to that information. The reason why that exception applies is explained in the Annex to this letter.
