Crown Land Transfer | Bridport

At Monday’s Council Meeting Council resolved to formally request the transfer of Crown Land within Bridport from Crown Land Services to Dorset Council. The purpose of this resolution is to remove an unnecessary layer of bureaucracy so that these public lands can be maintained by Council in accordance with wishes of the broader community. It also needs to be clearly understood that Council will NEVER have the ability to sell any of the public land subject to the transfer, only the Minister for Crown Land has this ability.

Council would also like to take this opportunity to thank community members for the tremendous support they have given in response to the recent foreshore works and acknowledge the outstanding work of the local contractors involved.
