The use of dredged material to restore intertidal habitats is well established elsewhere. But despite this, within the UK its use has been largely limited to usually small-scale schemes. 

This survey is being conducted to better understand the perception of the approach as held by stakeholders, practitioners, researchers and decision makers in the marine and coastal sectors.
The Survey 

In this survey I am interested in your familiarity with, and any personal experiences, of beneficial use projects and your perception of the opportunities and constraints of the approach. This is a short survey consisting of 15 questions and will take approximately between 9 and 12 minutes to complete.
