Seeking views on proposals to designate 8 beaches in Cornwall as bathing waters.
This consultation is being held on another website.
We want to know what you think about a proposal to designate eight beaches in Cornwall as bathing waters under the Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC). This follows an application we have received from Cornwall Council. The beaches being considered are:
- Booby’s Bay, near St Merryn
- Godrevy, The Towans, Hayle
- Gwynver, Whitesand Bay
- Northcott Mouth, near Bude
- South Fistral, Newquay
- Mexico Towan, Hayle
- Tregonhawke, Whitsand Bay
- Upton Towan, Hayle
We have published evidence of facilities and usage at each site. You can also read the criteria for designation and de-designation of bathing waters.
This consultation will be of interest to the recreation sector, leisure and tourism industries, beach users, environmental campaigners and families.
