Detail of outcome
We received 8 responses to these consultations.
Askam in Furness and Roanhead will be removed from the list of designated bathing waters because of concerns about public safety and low usage for bathing.
We want to know what you think about the proposal to remove Roanhead, and Askam in Furness, from the list of designated bathing waters. This proposal follows an application we have had from Barrow in Furness Borough Council.
We have published evidence of facilities and usage at the beaches, as well as the outcomes of a local consultation. You can also read the criteria for designation and dedesignation of bathing waters.
Bathing waters are designated under the Bathing Water Directive (76/160/EEC, revised by 2006/7/EC).
