MCS Recommended - UK award for highest water quality standards. visit the site here
Seaside Award (formerly Quality Coast Award) 2014: Blue Flag
Keep Britain Tidy’s Seaside Award recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management.
At a time when more and more people are choosing to holiday at home, the rapid growth of visitors enjoying our delightful and dramatic coastline has highlighted not only the demand but the importance in presenting and retaining clean, attractive and well managed beaches.
This award has been designed to provide beach managers with an effective management tool to achieve this, helping them to plan for future improvements and to generate funding to carry out developments.
Beach managers are provided with a three year action plan to help identify areas which may require improvement and help maintain the infrastructure currently in place to manage the beach.
A beach that achieves Seaside Award status will receive a nationally recognised mark of approval, helping to generate interest from both the public and the media. This in turn will help secure future funding for further developments of the coastal area and enhance local tourism.
Although Seaside Award beaches can often be very different, the flag is a symbol of quality which guarantees to visitors that the beach is one of the best in the country.
A total of 56 beaches have been awarded Blue Flags in 2014. - Frinton on Sea is one of them.
This year the water quality criteria has been judged against the EC Bathing Water Directive – 2006/7/EC and the bathing water must meet the excellent standard for both biological parameters.
