Weymouth and Portland Borough Council has approved plans for works to repair the harbour wall at Weymouth. Earlier this year regular sailings by Condor Ferries were suspended after the quayside began to collapse.
The ferry firm has welcomed the move to approve the works.
“Condor Ferries is pleased that Weymouth and Portland Borough Council has decided to approve the plan to go ahead with the works to repair the harbour wall.
“We will continue to liaise closely with the Council to confirm the timescales of the work involved. This is an important step toward the long term aim of developing Weymouth as the gateway to the Channel Islands, with the appropriate modern port facilities.
“It is our long term intention to return to operating regular sailings from Weymouth, once the works to restore the ferry port have been completed.”
