Harry May Plays Key Part in Protecting the Jurassic Coast From the Menace of Jet Skis.

Harry May of Harry May Mackerel Fishing and Boat Trips has played a key role in protecting a stretch of the Jurassic Coast between West Bay and Lyme Regis.

West Dorset District Council had proposed that Jets Skis would be allowed to launch from both Lyme Regis and West Bay. Despite concerns previously voiced by many residents the council appeared to be determined to force this idea upon the residents.

Harry May along with several other locals took up the mantra to try and get the decision reversed. It was pointed out to WDDC that in addition to the various safety concerns Lyme Regis had been very successful in marketing itself as an unspoilt tranquil destination, literally the Pearl of Dorset. Attracting visitors with a high disposable income, local business feared that he introduction of Jet Skis could deter people from visiting and undo much of the successful branding achieved for Lyme Regis by these business.

With pressure from residents, businesses and the intervention of Oliver Letwin WDDC announced in the Lyme and Bridport News that they had listened to the concerns of all and had changed their mind ….Jets Skis would no longer be permitted along this remarkable stretch of the coast.
