The UKMPA objects to the proposed TWE extension bin the grounds of its significant negative impact on the navigational safety of ships boarding and landing pilots at the North East Spit boarding ground south of the NE Spit buoy. The proposal will have a direct impact not only on ships' manoeuvring room but more importantly the increased undesirable effect on the potentially life threatening elements of already (globally recognised)generally hazardous but essential pilot boarding and landing operations from pilot boats in the area concerned.
