TIME is running out for people to have their say on an action plan for an important site in the town.

The consultation questionnaire for the Bridport Millennium Green Trust’ five year management plan comes to an end Wednesday, September 30.

So far the public have expressed their views online and by paper forms.

The trust says there has been support for many of the suggested improvements.

Top choice of priorities so far has been the restoration of the entrance to the woodland and meadow from Mountfield. More than 93 per cent of respondents want to see the entrance cleared and the wall rebuilt. Close behind this is the establishment of a woodland edge with native shrubs around the meadow. This measure was recommended in the 1998 ecological assessment of the hill.

There has also been recognition of the value of the Green during the Covid 19 lockdown and now for community functions on the lawn in front of Mountfield.

The stainless steel sculpture on the lawn has been described as 'brilliant'. And the gardens and raised beds were said to be a credit to the volunteers who put in so much work to produce variety and colour.

The open space offered by the meadow is the best liked feature with 100 per cent of respondents so far stating this. Closely followed is the appreciation of the views – including glimpses of the sea towards West Bay.

Trustee Paul Bennett said: “The response so far has been brilliant, but we hope more people will take part and have their say by either going to https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/A5IDW0/ or completing a form from the Tourist Information Centre, where there is also a display of the suggested plans.”
