Detail of feedback received
We received 3 responses to this consultation and we are considering these. We will publish the decision on removing Silloth from the list of bathing waters before the 2018 bathing season.
We want to know what you think about removing Silloth from the list of bathing waters designated under the Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC). It would be removed on the grounds of low usage for bathing and public safety concerns.
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.
