DETAILS of how traffic will be managed during work on the River Brit embankment at West Bay have been outlined.

The re-profiling work on the river embankment at the Parkdean Caravan Park was expected to start once the West Bat coastal improvement scheme was completed, but was delayed.

Now the work is being scheduled again and contractors are asking for planning permission for the works which include a steel sheet piled wall immediately landward of the existing embankment to protect the site from flooding.

The planning proposal, just verified by Dorset Council, also includes details of how the contractors will deal with traffic while the works take place with a fenced off area to be moved along as the work progresses.

Details of the application can be seen on the council website with the chance to comment on the proposals open until December 11.
