Associated British Ports (ABP) is planning to undertake the Dibden Bay Dock Development project in Hampshire, the UK.
The project involves the construction of a new container terminal on 202ha of land with a capacity of 0.5 to 0.8 million TEU at Southampton Port on the Dibden Bay site. The project includes the construction of berths for goods, general cargo, warehouses, internal road network, railway sliding and related infrastructural facilities.
The project will feature new dock facilities, warehouse buildings, transport connections and the attendant road traffic.
A major public inquiry took place in November 2001 and December 2002 into ABPs’ proposals to develop the project and the report was submitted in September 2003, however, the proposals was rejected by Secretary of State in April 2004.
The project was earlier refused on environmental grounds in 2004 after a 13-month public enquiry. But later in January 2009, the project was revived and Dibden was viewed as the best and only site suitable for port expansion.
As per the demand forecasts by ABP, the expansion into the Dibden reclaim will become necessary between 2021 and 2027. Hence, a detailed development proposal is not required until that time. ABP will use this time to engage with key stakeholders such as Natural England, the Environment Agency and local authorities and communities to put together a brief identifying how best the site may be planned.
New Forest District Council opposed the project development proposals, due to damage on international and national nature conservation sites.
Planning activities are underway.
