Response / where addressed in the East Anglia ES
Cliff stability is considered within Section 20.6. The cliff profile would be surveyed prior to construction of the temporary access ramp to ensure the profile is maintained once construction is complete.
Phase 2 Consultation comments
Deben Estuary Partnership enquired whether arisings from the Deben Estuary directional drilling can be directed towards saltmarsh regeneration projects.
Such recycling would be viewed positively, subject to relevant standards being met. In determining feasibility, testing of the arisings would be required to ensure they meet required standards, along with demonstration that the material was of a suitable composition and that contaminant levels were acceptable.
Re-using soils at exempt sites or using the Claire Protocol should be considered in preference to disposal. Landfill disposal should only be used where no other suitable option exists.

Detailed method statements for HDD operations would be finalised prior to construction. These, and the Code of Construction Practice, would consider disposal of arisings. For the purposes of the ES, as a worst case, it has been assumed that arisings from HDD operations would be disposed of in a licensed landfill.
