As you may know we already have 100's of images of building material on Redcar beach from Coatham to Zetland. Well early this year (2014) we also received tons of pictures of Coatham Dunes. 

 

These pictures are from same location. One looks West, the other East. The East side requires lots of attention.

These images we're so serious we took over a complaint to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) from a third party on the 7th August 2014. The HSE had their Principle Officer looking into it but have delivered no action that improves this site. (February 2015 see link below)

This issue has been clearly identified by us but there has been no foreseeable action. We are not prepared to sit back and do nothing over such a dangerous area. What on earth is RCBC thinking of, how have we let this go on for so long and how much longer are we going to risk injury to our children and visitors?

How did they/we allow our beach area around Coatham dunes to become this bad without any thought to keep it safe for weekends and holidays and for our kids to play on. Why isn't this area safe and clean?

Heartbreaking doesn't begin to describe this mess. We'd sort it ourselves if the funding was available to hire heavy equipment and we were able to remove these vast heavy objects, remove all the broken glass and cover over with sand.


The dunes are made up of broken masonry from the 1980's. These are landfill sites that we allow our children to play on. Dissipating sand has revealed the truth. This will only get worse over time if we continue to do nothing.

If you don't care, who will? Who will sort out our beach if you don't push for it? Councillors who have little interest or influence? Decision makers who don't live in Redcar and who rarely visit the beach or view this issue important? Make a difference. Your action is important. https://www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/Forms.nsf/ComplaintForm_3?readform

Redcar is roughly around the same size as Scarborough - they manage their beaches and without any support from hugely profitable industries living on their doorstep.

Apathy is a loud statement that says "I don't care". And if you don't, if there is no pride, then here we are living it because when we say nothing - it's the same as saying "It's ok".

Together we can change our culture. Please break the mould and act now. Don't moan without action - tell the right people. https://www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/Forms.nsf/ComplaintForm_3?readform

Remember, we have elected representatives. Are they doing anything about this? Have they been on the dunes? Who's your representative? 


These pictures were taken right outside the caravan park where the holiday kids will be playing as well as locals who walk with their families. It's at best a claim and at worst a death trap.

Would you let your children play here. These do. We see kids doing somersaults and handstands here. Did you know this is what they're playing amongst?

Barefooted amongst glass and debris. Please complain. Surely this should stop?

Here is a suggestion. Preserve and rebuild the dunes and allow wildlife to thrive. 





Thank you.
