10. Will the dredging of Pole Sands affect Exmouth beach?

The Environment Agency plan on dredging Pole Sands to recharge the beach at Dawlish Warren.

Dredging is a highly regulated industry, and the Environment Agency assessments have shown that dredging this relatively small proportion of Pole Sands will not put Exmouth at risk. In addition, enhanced monitoring is planned at Exmouth to ensure there is no detriment to the shoreline.
