Ownership of Jellyfields and Bothenhampton Nature Reserve will soon transfer from Dorset Council to Bridport Town Council.

Bothenhampton & Walditch Parish Council is working with Bridport Town Council to produce new management plans for the sites to define and prioritise practical action to enhance the area for wildlife as well as promoting quiet enjoyment.

Developing the new Management Plan

Community consultation is essential to gathering information about what currently works well and what ideas for improvements need to be considered in developing new management plans for the next ten years.

Over the next five months the Town and Parish Council will be consulting the wider community to gather information and draft plans for public consideration.

The first phase of consultation started in May, with distribution of postcards asking residents and site users what they like best about the site and what issues need to be addressed.
