Welcome to the Bridport Area Development Trust website.

‘One of the best towns in Dorset which for its continuously sustained urban feeling, is perhaps the best of all.’ Nicholas Pevsner
From Buildings Of England Dorset Edition.

Our Mission Statement really explains the purpose of the trust and what we are trying to achieve. ‘The Bridport Area Development Trust works in partnership to identify, plan and deliver projects that meet local need and provide long term economic and community benefit to the town and beyond’.

Our Vision is simple ‘Building a Better Bridport’.

The BADT has completed a number of innovative projects in the Bridport area, details of which can be found on our projects pages. We are always keen to consider and support appropriate enterprises which may be presented.
