What we’re working on …

West Bay is a great place to live and visit but that doesn’t stop there being room for improvement – as well retaining whats best about the area. Some local issues and concerns are long standing and others fairly new.

Our current priorities include getting improvements to public car parks in West Bay and obtaining a safe pedestrian crossing between the St John’s Church area and the harbour/shops. We are also keen to support the creation of an interpretation centre at the former Methodist Chapel that will capture all that is best about West Bay and its surrounds and encourage people to explore it. Have a look at our project page and vote for your priority.

The Forum is a small organisation, but we are building a strong partnership with the Bridport Town Council. We are also keen to expand our membership and work with local businesses and other organisations.

Our objectives are, in summary, to work together with residents, councils, businesses and other organisations to achieve real and sustainable improvements to life in West Bay (not forgetting that we are part of Bridport too). At the same time we wish to protect our natural and built environment.

None of this will be quick or easy, but with your support we’ll keep working towards these aims.




Welcome to our website

Welcome to the new website for West Bay Community Forum. Firstly very many thanks are due to Albert Hogg for setting up and maintaining the previous website, which had been live since the inception of the Forum almost three years ago.

We have opted for a new look. We hope you will like it, but please let us know if you think there is anything that could improve it.

The Forum also has a Facebook page. A link to this can be found on the right of this page, so if you use Facebook please follow with us through this as well by liking our page.

We’ll  use this website to inform both residents and visitors about what the Forum is doing. We’re all volunteers, so we welcome your support and active participation in our campaigns and projects to improve West Bay. If you live in West Bay or nearby, run a business or have a holiday home here and you’re not yet a member then please consider joining us.
