Keep the truth at Bay

Reader's write - Letters

Your report Lessons of Dibden Bay (NCE 17 June) incorrectly identified one of our employees as being the director of the anti-Dibden lobby group, Environment UK.

Sian John is in fact director of Royal Haskoning's UK Environment business group and, beyond her capacity as business group director, had no direct involvement in the Dibden Bay project.

The article also built up expectations of a debate on port development and the environment involving speakers from Royal Haskoning at last week's Sea Work exhibition and conference.

I would like to point out that Sian John and Royal Haskoning principal engineer Tony Parker attended the conference to give a paper entitled 'Waterfront engineering solutions', with no reference to Dibden Bay.

The involvement of Royal Haskoning personnel in any open debate or discussions on Dibden Bay had not been put to Royal Haskoning and, had it been, would have been rejected.
