Impacts and risks of sandwave levelling for cable burial: can you help?

Can you help Defra fill in gaps in information on the impacts and risks of sandwave levelling? Complete our 10/15-minute questionnaire

Are you involved in the assessment or installation of cables in the marine environment? If so, Defra needs your help!

Defra is implementing a new Offshore Wind Environmental Improvements Package (OWEIP) to support the British Energy Security Strategy (BESS) measure to deliver 50 GW of offshore wind energy by 2030.

OWEIP aims to accelerate offshore wind deployment while protecting, and offering opportunities to enhance, the marine environment. As part of this, Defra needs your help to fill in gaps in public domain information, and specific data on the risks and opportunities of sandwave levelling.

Your answers to our 10/15-minute questionnaire will help fill gaps in understanding on where and how often we are using this method and what the risks, impacts and opportunities are associated with its use.

Any supporting information and data you can provide will significantly help grow the evidence base.

Complete the questionnaire

Please submit your response by 24 November.

We would be grateful if you could forward the link to relevant industry colleagues; your responses will be much appreciated.

ABPmer routinely advises marine sectors on regulatory and policy matters and has a long history supporting government and its agencies in developing the evidence base against which policy decisions are made.
