Other ways you can help

If you haven't done so already, please add your voice to our campaign. Once you have, here are some of the other ways you can show your love for Dungeness.

Sign the Government e-petition

We're not the only ones protesting the proposed encroachment at Dungeness. The local fishing and angling community have also set up a petition to protect Dungeness point to ensure their access to the premier winter cod fishery in the Britain remains unrestricted. (The quarry will fence parts of it off.)

View the e-petition.

Write to the Planning Applications Committee

The Kent County Council Planning Applications Committee is responsible for determining this application. You may wish to write to one or more of the members (ideally your District Councillor, if they are listed) highlighting your concerns with the proposal.

Full contact details for all members of the Planning Applications Committee can be found on the Kent County Council Planning Applications Committee website.

(You may wish to read this guide on How to Lobby Your Local Councillor. This is a 114KB PDF document that you can download to your computer and read using Adobe's free Reader — this program is almost certainly already installed on your computer.)

Write to the RSPB

Dungeness provides fabulous wildlife watching in a unique landscape, many parts of which are managed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Contact the RSPB online and ask them to represent your view to the local Authority that the quarry proposal will impact your peaceful enjoyment of the wildlife of Dungeness.

Write to the Environment Agency

The Environment Agency believes that shingle recycling schemes (such as this) are "expensive" and provide only "a low standard of protection against flooding which can lead to failure of the defences".

Email Ian Nunn at the Environment Agency (ian.nunn@environment-agency.gov.uk) requesting that the Environment Agency works to find a more forward-thinking, sustainable and less environmentally detrimental plan for providing flood protection.

Put up a poster

Four Love Dungeness campaign posters, featuring architectural icons from the Dungeness conservation area, are available free for you to download and print.
