The CLdN Group operates ro-ro shipping lines between the Humber and northern European ports including Rotterdam [operated by CLdN ro-ro SA]) and Zeebrugge [operated by Cobelfret Ferries NV]. The CLdN Group has been consulted about the project by the applicant and considers that there should not be any impact on its operations provided that the Secretary of State ensures that the mitigation measures set out in the environmental statement are secured by way of a requirement or other provision, and that there is adequate future monitoring of the effectiveness of the measures. Any failure to provide the mitigation would present collision and allision risk to commercial shipping, particularly in the event of ships sailing off their usual course as a result of adverse weather or other incidents.
