TDC Conservative Group reaction to TDC plans to consult public on decommissioning Walpole Bay as a bathing beach

The Conservative Group at Thanet District Council is very concerned at reports that the Labour administration is launching a consultation which may result in Walpole Bay Beach being decommissioned as a bathing beach.

Group Leader, Cllr Bob Bayford said: “I am horrified, given that the Destination Management Plan has just been launched by this administration, to hear that the council is considering relegating Walpole Bay to a ‘walkers’ beach.  The reasons behind this move remain unclear. 

“Local residents are rightly concerned and we will be adding our voice to those who want to see this beach retained as a key destination for tourists and locals alike.”
