Tenby Harbour and North Beach users are being warned of sand dredging taking place over a four-day period this month.

Anyone in the locality is being asked to please be aware of heavy moving machinery on the beach from Monday, March 14 to 17, with sand to be removed from the mouth of the harbour and deposited at the north end of the beach.

“We ask that the public please keep clear of the operating area and that dogs are kept on the lead during this time,” said Tenby harbourmaster Chris Salisbury.

Dredging has taken place annually around the harbour area over the past two to threeyears, after concerns were expressed by local councillors and harbour users that high levels of sandbanks that were forming, were causing disruption to boats entering and exiting the area.

Councillors and members of Tenby Harbour Users Association have previously flagged-up concerns about the high level of sand sweeping towards Goscar rock across the North Beach, leaving high sandbanks around a section of the harbour’s pier, making it difficult for boats to get back into the harbour.

Details of the Marine licence DML1848 can be viewed at the harbourmaster’s office.
