Much of the maintenance of public areas around the parish is dependent upon bought in services from Bridport Town Council and Dorset Council. The latter issued this statement dated 20 March 2020:
“Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) our services are changing. This is so that we can redeploy employees to help front line staff, protect those in at-risk groups and keep essential services running.
This is an unprecedented, continually changing situation and we are all working to keep Dorset residents safe.
All services will be regularly reviewed to take into account the latest position and advice on COVID-19 from Public Health England.”
