A report setting out the proposed approach to
delivering the Lifeguard Service in 2023.
1. Noted the risk-based approach to prioritising the beaches that will have lifeguard stations for the 2023 summer season (May – September).
2. Agreed to focus core lifeguard resources on four beaches during the 2023 season, as outlined in para 4.2, based on the findings and control measures identified through the beach risk assessment process.
3. Agreed that additional lifeguards during the six-week school holiday period will be stationed on three further beach areas, as outlined in para 4.5, following the same risk-based approach.
4. Agreed to progress a review of options for the longer-term delivery of a sustainable Lifeguard Service, including options to increase funding through sponsorship and/or for the RNLI to deliver the service on the Council’s behalf.
