The Ministry of Defence, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and Fife Council continue to work together to implement the agreed Management Strategy for the long-term management of radium contamination at Dalgety Bay.

Remediation is due to physically begin in April 2020 and be completed in September of the same year. The second phase of work is planned to begin in April 2021 and be completed in September 2021. Work cannot take place outside of these periods due to the disturbance that may be caused to wintering birds.
