* 3)  Write expressing your objections to the following people. A paper letter counts for more than an e-mail, but we have provided both addresses in each case. You can word your letter any way you like, but we suggest you ask for full public disclosure of the details of the planned transshipment port in the Portland Bight Protected Area, with comprehensive public consultation. You could also mention that you believe that an Environmental Impact Assessment should be conducted before any decision is taken.
