The Town Council would like to thank the Marine Conservation Society for organising, and local residents for taking part in, the recent beach clean up.
The Council is concerned with all litter deposits which occur in various locations around the town. The recent beach clear up is in line with Council policy of arranging similar action.
A clear up was organised at Gravel Field in March 2018 and at the beach in April 2019. Clear ups are being planned for the Lozenge and Gravel Field in the near future. Dates to be confirmed.
An Environmental Policy is being prepared under the auspices of the Town Council Planning Committee, Chaired by Councillor Ben Smith. This will be publically launched in the Town Council offices at the end of October – exact date to be advised.
Local resident, Susie Jenkins, in conjunction with the Town Council, has formed the “Brightlingsea Nature Network”. All volunteers to this organisation would be most welcome. If you wish to volunteer, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01206 303535.
