HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 cc38-9W
Sir S. McAdden

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he will give a list of those coastal authorities who are now treating their sewage inland and are regarded by him as having safe and clean beaches; and whether he will give a list of those resorts which are in the course of constructing inland sewage plans or have plans for so doing.

Mr. MacColl

The following lists have been compiled from the replies of coastal authorities to circulars issued in 1965 to the larger authorities and in 1966 to the smaller authorities, and may be incomplete:

(a) Coastal authorities with inland sewage disposal Works

  • Southend on Sea C.B.
  • Southport C.B.
  • Aldeburgh B.
  • Christchurch B.
  • Lydd B.
  • Southwold B.
  • Mablethorpe and Sutton U.D.
  • Sandown and Shanklin U.D.
  • Skegness U.D.
  • Camelford R.D. (part only of sewage treated inland).
  • Spilsby R.D.

(b) Local authorities constructing inland sewage disposal Works

  • Bournemouth C.B.
  • Bristol C.B.
  • Southampton C.B.
  • Sunderland C.B.
  • Poole B.
  • Rye B.
  • Worthing B.
  • Burnham on Crouch U.D.
  • Canvey Island U.D.
  • Havant and Waterloo U.D.
  • Bridport R.D.

(c) Local authorities planning inland sewage disposal works

  • Blackpool C.B.
  • Preston C.B.
  • Ryde B.
  • New Romney B.
  • Plympton St. Mary R.D.
  • Sheppey R.D.
  • South Westmorland R.D.

I have no list of resorts with safe and clean beaches, but such a list would include many where the sewage is not disposed of inland.
