Transport by the water

Access to the site during the construction phase and the disturbance this can cause is an important consideration.

It is worth exploring the option of moving materials onto and off site by water, especially where the destination/origin is also on the waterside e.g. waste handling site, building suppliers. Our local staff may be able to put you in touch with companies potentially able to help with carriage of materials by water and local water-side handling sites.

There may be opportunities for Government grants, particularly for larger schemes, for transporting materials by water.
