SCUBA-DIVERS ARE objecting to Dublin Port’s plans to dump 10 million tonnes of dredging waste off Howth Head.

The process is being carried out as part of the port’s massive revamp plan.

An Bord Pleanála gave the green light to the €230 million redevelopment plan – aimed at increasing the flow of cargo and cruise ships into the city – back in July.

The ambitious project, which would take five years to complete, would require 3km of quay walls to be rebuilt.
