If so, how much extra cost is unreasonable? In terms of beneficial use, who do they need to benefit? There is at present a startling lack of guidance on these matters. It has been suggested to applicants in the past that they should be allocating for capital projects up to 10% of the predicted cost of the works to fund extra beneficial disposal options, but this does not appear to be a consistently applied approach. Given the long time periods required for planning approvals or environmental investigations, it would seem likely that many alternative disposal options will need to be promoted by others - local authorities, flood prevention agencies or conservation bodies, working in conjunction with the harbour authorities or others planning to carry out dredging.
