A Christchurch museum has been granted permission to build an extension to house a “significant” passenger ferry.
Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council has approved plans submitted by the Red House Museum for a new porch on its western wall.
Its historic 1948 salmon punt will be displayed in a purpose-built steel frame once the extension has been built.
The vessel was built in Christchurch and is described as “very significant to the history of the river [Avon]”.
A refurbishment of the listed main building will also take place.
