Go-ahead to deepen Chichester jewel
Britain’s first marina – Birdham Pool, in West Sussex – is to benefit from £100,000 plus investment following consent to dredge its entrance channel.
The dredging will allow a wider tidal window of 3.5 hours either side of HW Portsmouth.
The proprietors of the Chichester-based marina hope owners of deeper draught boats will now be encouraged to berth there.
