Detail of outcome
We received 21 responses to this consultation. Rock will be removed from the list of designated bathing waters with effect from the 2016 bathing season.
We want to know what you think about a proposal to remove Rock from the list of bathing waters designated under the Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC) for public safety reasons.
We have published evidence about the safety hazards at the beach and the outcome of a survey into beach usage. You can also read the criteria for designation and de-designation of bathing waters.
This consultation is of interest to beach users, the leisure and tourist industries, environmental NGOs and anyone with an interest in the coastal environment.
