To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 15 April 2019 to Question 241447 on Radioactive Waste: Dalgety Bay, what those works will entail; what residents of Dalgety Bay and the surrounding area can expect in terms of disruption to their lives; and what visual remediation will take place on site at the end of each period of works.

The implementation of the agreed management strategy at Dalgety Bay involves the removal of radium sources; the reinforcement, replacement and extension of coastal armour stone and the construction of a replacement slipway at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club.

It is not possible at this time to determine the amount of disruption that may be caused by the work at Dalgety Bay as this has only recently gone to tender. Once a contractor has been appointed, a construction plan will be developed by them in consultation with the local council to minimise disruption.

Works on site will only be permitted between 1 April and 30 September each year. At the end of the first season any incomplete works will be protected and made safe, and will be completed in the following season.
