Passenger boats along coast: have your say

Residents in Dorset and east Devon are being asked about plans to bring in passenger boats to cut coastal traffic.

The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) have been looking into the viability of waterborne travel.

Pilot routes could link Weymouth to Portland, Bournemouth with Swanage, Studland and Poole, and Sidmouth with Seaton, Lyme Regis and West Bay.

Residents have until 28 February to comment on the idea which forms part of the draft joint local transport plan for Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset.

To give your views, go to and follow the link from the home page to ‘Draft Stage 2 Waterborne Transport Study’. I think is where that takes you:

Since complaining about the tortuous commenting process, I've been sent this link:
