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.
How will the new management plan be developed?
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 Council will be consulting the wider community to gather information and draft plans for public consideration.
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 below:
- Bothenhampton Nature Reserve Management Plan – Consultation Postcard
- Jellyfields Management Plan – Consultation Postcard
Postcards should be returned to the Town Council offices at Mountfield or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of May 2020.
