We have received an application from Bournemouth Borough Council for Manor Steps beach in Bournemouth to be designated as a bathing water under the Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC). Bathing waters are beaches or inland waters that are popular for bathing, where the Environment Agency monitors the water quality between May and September each year.
The consultation document includes a map showing the location of the proposed bathing water and evidence in support of its designation.
Why We Are Consulting
We would welcome your views on whether Manor Steps should be added to the list of designated bathing waters.
Consultees can respond using the online survey (please see below).
