West Bay Quay Wall Strengthening works

Local residents and harbour users may be aware that the section of the harbour wall, known as the deep water berth has been subject to problems for over a decade. The quay wall has been undermined largely by the action of water released from the sluices and repairs have only been temporary in nature leaving the risk of the whole structure collapsing at some point.

Work started in February on a scheme that will improve the long-term stability of the wall. We have attached a link from this page to a presentation from West Dorset District Council which provides an outline of the work proposed.
