Local fury as dredging starts on new Glastonbury Marina

Dredging has started in the new Glastonbury MarinaLocal residents are up in arms about the dredging that started on the new Glastonbury Marina this weekend.

The fear is that because this is ahead of final planning permission sign-off by the Glastonbury Planning Committee the town might find itself with a huge lake but no marina.

It’s not all bad though – keen sailor Roger Ginty of Shipton Terrace in Glastonbury has been sitting in his 26 foot yacht this afternoon making sure it’s all shipshape and Bristol fashion. He’s waiting for the new marina to open for business because his craft has been marooned in Glastonbury since 1986 and this will be his big chance to sail back from the marina into the Bristol Channel, along the canal that is to be completed by 2015.
