At the present moment, work is delayed in the project planning stage.
The Cobb is a Grade 1 listed structure, and Dorset Council are working closely with Historic England and other heritage groups to work towards developing plans that are sensitive to protect the inherent historical and cultural quality.
If plans are approved, Dorset Coast Forum (DCF) will lead on the wider public, community and commercial engagement; ensuring that key user groups are consulted to mitigate any adverse impacts. Two events have been held already with the commercial users of the Cobb, and wider community-level events and activities will take place in due course with updates on this webpage.

Dorset Coast Forum’s Project Officer James Mitchell will lead on the community engagement for this project. His contact details are below:
