REGENERATION chiefs have hit out at people who are blighting a coastline beauty spot.
Horden Regeneration Partnership has joined forces with the Durham Heritage Coast Partnership to warn that the dumping of rubbish in the area near Limekiln Gill will not be tolerated.
June Clark, regeneration partnership chairwoman, has met with Niall Benson, Durham Heritage Coast Officer on the coastal footpath nearby.
Their message is: “Enjoy the views, but leave nothing but your footprints.”
They highlighted the stretch of beach as an area of beauty transformed by the £10million Turning The Tide project.
Coun Clark said: “The beach is a wonderful resource we have on our doorstep to enjoy some free exercise, with stunning views along the Heritage Coast Footpath at Horden.
“With several access points along the length of the village it is an ideal free place to get out and enjoy, blow away any cobwebs and get that ‘feel good factor’ that fresh air and exercise brings.
“I’m sure Niall will agree with me though in urging anyone coming to take their litter home with them.”
