Lyme Regis Town Council has just announced that the dredger will be arriving soon to commence annual dredging of the Lyme Regis outer harbour and summer pontoons.

Usually, dredging activities at Lyme Regis take place during May and June, but this year officials decided to get started a little early.

“We are starting early this year, hoping that the stormy weather is behind us but in time to finish the works before the tourist season begins in earnest at Easter,” the Council said in the release.

To avoid any danger to members of the public, the Council will be closing off the beach front with Heras fencing.

Dredging work is a key part of the maintenance programme and will ensure the harbour remains safe and accessible for all users.
