To ensure that residents are able to fully enjoy the spectacular East Riding coast this Easter, the council has issued a reminder about potential safety issues on beaches and cliff tops.
Long stretches of the East Riding's 85-kilometre coastline may be affected by coastal erosion as a result of natural processes.
Cliff losses linked to coastal erosion can occur at any time of the year and visitors and residents are advised to take care on the beaches and cliff tops, by following these safety tips:
When on the beach:
When on the cliff top:
The council is aware that recent adverse weather conditions have resulted in changes in beach levels and the appearance of debris at several locations along the coast. This is a result of natural processes and it is expected that beach levels will recover in the near future, however in the meantime, where necessary, the council will take all appropriate measures to ensure that its resort beaches are safe and clean.
The council would like to stress that large cliff falls are infrequent and that, by following the advice given above, visitors to the East Riding coast can enjoy a relaxing and safe experience.
For more information about staying safe at the coast while enjoying everything that it has to offer, call the coastal services office on South Promenade, in Bridlington, on (01262) 678255 or email them at email@example.com
