Closed – Heysham Half Moon Bay – bathing water consultation 2013

In February Defra launched a consultation on whether Heysham Half Moon Bay should be dedesignated as an official  bathing water and removed from the list of bathing waters designated under the Bathing Water Directive (76/160/EEC, revised by 2006/7/EC). This consultation follows an application from Lancaster City Council to have Heysham Half Moon Bay removed from the list as there is very low usage for bathing. Their application to have it dedesignated follows local consultation by Lancaster City Council on this issue. For more information, to see the criteria for dedesignation, the evidence for this particular bathing water beach and to respond please follow the link to the Defra consultation page. The consultation closes on 12th April 2013.
