In line with the Government’s roadmap for the next few months, the Council is planning to reopen all slipways in Cleethorpes for private craft to access the sea from Monday 29 March. Should dates change, this may be revised.
In order to access the slipways, new members will need to register with the Resort Team at the Beach Safety Office for a permit and key for the slipway gates.
Renewals and new permits for the 2021-22 season commences 1 April 2021 will cost £40 or £50 if you are a new member or a member does not return their previous key.
The Beach Safety Office will be open for people to register for a permit, but due to COVID guidance, this will have to be done observing social distancing, so there may be some appropriate changes to procedure at the office.
New applicants will be required to supply a photograph of themselves, the craft, trailer and pulling vehicle along with mobile and email address and insurance details. A photograph is not required if you were previously in the slipway scheme for 2020-21.
Day launch permits are also available, providing 48hours notice is given.
Cllr Callum Procter, Cabinet member for tourism, said: “I’m pleased to see that we’re re-opening up the slipways for people to enjoy the sea, whether for water sports or for fishing. However, people must remember that they need to use these responsibly.”
