Weymouth Harbour Freezes Prices

Weymouth Harbour

12:10pm 8th January 2015

Weymouth Harbour has frozen its fees for a second consecutive year - but 6 jobs are to go at Weymouth Port.

The harbour management board say the job losses of Port Operatives are due to the imminent departure of Condor Ferries and they need to make savings of £174,000.

The freeze on fees means Weymouth Harbour remains one of the cheapest places to berth on the south coast.

Cllr Kate Wheller, Chairman of the Harbour Management Board, said: "Whilst 2015 may bring some changes for Weymouth Harbour post Condor Ferries' operations, the commitment to providing customers with great value means that we are keeping our prices competitive.

"This is great news for our existing leisure customers, but also for anyone considering berthing in Weymouth as there are berths available; just call or pop in and speak to a member of our friendly harbour team in the Harbour Office on Custom House Quay."
