The Department of Agriculture, Environment, and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has launched a public consultation on a review of bathing waters in Northern Ireland.
Agriculture, Environment, and Rural Affairs Minister, Edwin Poots said: “I am very aware of the surge in interest in wild water swimming across Northern Ireland and work is now underway on a full review of Bathing Waters in 2022/23 which will seek views on the current management of Bathing Waters, identification of new sites and extending the length of the bathing season.
“To assist the review, I am launching this public consultation, and I look forward to considering the views of all those with an interest.”
Access to the consultation is available on the nidirect website.
