Plans to repair the damaged harbour walls at Weymouth by the local council have received the backing of Condor Ferries
Weymouth and Portland Council has unveiled plans to have the walls repaired and is also proposing a redevelopment of the location to improve facilities, the Dorset Echo reports.
Condor has switched its Weymouth services to Poole for the summer because of the structural problems suffered by the site, but councillors hope they can be restored in March 2013, following completion of the £150,000 repair project.
The news provider quoted Condor's operations director Captain Fran Collins as saying: "We are pleased to hear that the council has agreed to allocate funding towards a design study for the quay walls."
He also welcomed the "consideration" being given to a wider redevelopment of the port.
As well as sailing from Weymouth or Poole, Condor Ferries also serve the Channel Islands and northern France from Portsmouth.
