CLIFF HOUSE - proposed stopping up of highway rights

The Parish Council has been asked to comment on the proposal to stop up the section of highway adjacent to Cliff House, Old Lyme Road in line with this plan.  If you have any objections to this proposal, Dorset Council would like to know before the 9th of December.


Bridport Town Council has taken over management of the West Bay Car Boot Sale from the former West Dorset District Council, and will be distributing the funds generated from pitch fees in the form of grants to community and voluntary organisations whose work benefits people living in the Bridport Local Area Partnership area.
The scheme is now open for applications for the year 2020. The application form and guidance can be found at our website: Completed applications must be received by 5pm on Friday 20 December 2019. Applications will be considered by a panel of Bridport Town Council and Dorset Council councillors in January or February 2020, and grant awards will be paid by the 31 March 2020, subject to the applicant’s acceptance of any grant conditions before that date. Please note that whilst there is no formal limit on the amount you can apply for, the typical amount awarded by the Town Council is in the region of £500.


The Council, at its meeting in July, co-opted Mrs Jane Bremner as a Parish Councillor making 8 Councillors for the 11 available places.  Sadly since then, Mrs Judy Fellingham has resigned and this notice has now been displayed.

If you would like to help shape the community which you live in, or have a skill which you think could benefit the running of the Parish, please write or email your letter of application to the Parish Clerk, Lisa Tuck, at the Elms, St Andrews Drive, Charmouth, DT6 6LN or

Co-options will take place at the next Council meeting. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
