The beneficial use of dredged material is well established in the USA and the Netherlands but has been usually limited to small-scale schemes in the UK. This short questionnaire seeks to understand how making beneficial use of dredge materials is viewed in the UK, specifically how the opportunities and constraints of intertidal recharge schemes are perceived. This questionnaire is being undertaken as part of a MSc dissertation considering the role of beneficial use schemes for intertidal habitat conservation in the UK. The perception of the constraints and opportunities of these schemes are anticipated to have a significant bearing upon future uptake, and thus are an important area of consideration.
Access the questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VQRHRPJ. Deadline is 30 August 2107.
