Dredging To Start At West Bay

Dredging at Bridport Harbour is getting underway tomorrow (Nov 5th) to help improve access for boat owners.

It'll scoop sand and sediment from the seabed to make sure the harbour is deep enough for boats, especially in low tide.

The work in the inner harbour will last around four weeks from 7am to 7pm and means nobody can use the harbour's west basin during this time.

Cllr Robert Gould, Leader of West Dorset District Council, said: "This important work needs to be carried out to ensure access in and out of the harbour.

"The district council endeavours to keep disruption to a minimum and we thank everyone for their cooperation."

It follows on from last year's successful dredging of the inner harbour's east basin.

The sediment build-up is a common occurrence in active harbours and dredging is required periodically to ensure harbour operations are not affected.
