Jellyfields and Bothenhampton Nature Reserve

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

The Town Council working with Botehnhampton & Walditch Parish Council, is looking 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.

The first phase of consultation starts 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.

The consultation postcards can be downloaded by following this link.
