Detail of feedback received
We received 31 responses to this consultation and we are considering these. We will publish the decision on removing Instow from the list of bathing waters before the 2018 bathing season.
We want to know what you think about removing Instow from the list of bathing waters designated under the Bathing Water Regulations 2013 (S.I. 2013/1675).
The bathing water was classified as poor in 2015 and 2016. It is unlikely that the water quality of this bathing water can be improved.
We welcome comments, based on evidence, about the technical feasibility of improving bathing water quality at the beach to meet at least the minimum standards.
This consultation will be of interest to the recreation sector, leisure and tourism industries, farmers, environmental campaigners and beach users.
