Coverack's beaches and bathing waters are safe to enjoy again

Coverack is now very much open for business, with hotels and holiday accommodation and shops, cafes and restaurants welcoming both local residents and visitors.

At the same time work on the recovery is continuing, with support for disposing of waste items generated by the floods, repairs to minor roads and sections of the coastal footpath damaged by the flood water, and advice, information and guidance available.

Council staff are continuing to work with Volunteer Cornwall and will be available to meet local residents in the Paris Hotel between 10 am and 2pm over the next few days.  The emergency helpline set up by the Council immediately following the floods will be live until the end of this week for anyone who has not been able to speak face to face with a member of staff.  After this members of the public with queries can contact staff in the Council’s contact centre on 0300 1234 100.

The skips provided by the Council will remain in place on Mill Road today (Tuesday 25 July) for people to dispose of the waste items.  After this householders will be able to contact the Council’s waste team on 0300 1234 141 to arrange collection of furniture, white goods etc damaged by the floods for the rest of the week.

Following confirmation that the potential pollution problems caused by the flood damage have been resolved, the warning signs have been removed and people are being encouraged to enjoy Coverack’s beautiful beaches and bathing waters.

“ We said last week that our aim was to get Coverack back on its feet as quickly as possible” said Council Leader Adam Paynter.   “ I am delighted that we have achieved this.

“Like Local Member Julian Rand , I have been humbled by the way everyone has worked together to support the people and businesses affected by the floods.  We know that there is still more to do and I can reassure the local community that we are not leaving just because the road has re opened today.  I said at the first residents meeting that we would remain in the village until the repairs had been completed and that is what we will do.

“Coverack is very much open for business and we will be working with the Local Enterprise Partnership and other partners to promote this message loud and clear”.
