The Court, West Street, Bridport

End of an era? Housing plans for The Court

A major planning application has been lodged for redevelopment of The Court in West Street.

Currently the base for Amsafe (Bridport-Gundry), The Court is one of the town’s few remaining rope and net-making works.

The proposal lodged by Bournemouth-based Lighthouse Land and Developments includes: “The refurbishment and remodelling of the Grade II Listed Court building to provide a mixed use development of commercial use on the ground floor and residential units on three floors above.”

The two-story warehouse/office building at the rear will be demolished to create additional parking and a new three-storey residential flat building.

The semi-detached cottages on West Street will be retained and refurbished.
