The environmental group Filey Against Dredging (“FAD”) was formed in 1990, in response to an application made by ARC Marine to dredge 20 million tonnes of sand and gravel from Filey Bay, on the North Yorkshire coast. Following massive public and local council support, FAD commissioned an extensive Environmental Study of Filey Bay. In the light of this evidence the Dredging application was retracted. The Filey Bay Environmental Statement remains an important document and is consulted by utility firms and other organisations wanting to work in the Bay.
Filey Against Dredging under it’s new name of the Filey Coast Issues Group still keeps a watchful eye on any developments which might threaten the beautiful Marine Environment of Filey Bay.
