Nearly all marine minerals dredging is licensed by the Crown Estate which informs that no new or extended licences were issued in 1998, 2000, 2001 or 2002 off the coast of Norfolk. In 1999, revised licences were issued for Areas 436 and 202 so that the tonnage to be dredged was not increased. In 2003 an existing licence for Area 254 was extended for a further 15 years.
