Runswick Bay gets CZP


"The UK government has extended the coastal "blue belt" of protected marine areas.

The designation of 23 new Marine Conservation Zones mean that 8,000 square miles of UK waters now have environmental protection.

The announcement has been welcomed by conservation and wildlife organisations.

However they, along with fishermen's groups, are concerned that there is no management plan."

"Blue Belt"? ... the bells the bells



One small leap ...

Runswick Alert


"The present policy for making repairs to the seawall and defences at Runswick Bay is that it is done on an ad-hoc basis even though the area is not owned by the borough council. However. the authority has deemed it necessary to intervene as soon as possible.

The report says: “The actual rate of deterioration and time to significant failure is difficult to predict, however there is potential for the defences to unravel quite quickly leading to significant erosion and the initiation of landslides.”

Homeowners and locals are now fighting for the fishing beauty spot and have generated their own funds to put towards an emergency repair project which is currently being drawn up by the council.

They have formed the Runswick Bay Coastal Protection Trust which has raised its own money to be combined with over £1 million hastily scrambled from the Environment Agency and a £200,000 donation from Yorkshire Water...

"Contracts and tenders are now being drawn up and work to build more rock armour defences which are expected to be two metres high and up to eight metres wide. It will span some 40 metres along the seawall and provide protection for the next 100 years."

Tis in the Mulgrave Ward
