- Badger baiting
- Illegal vehicle use – motorcycles and quad bike
- Air guns
- Hunting with dogs
- Anti-social behaviour
None of these activities are legal along our coast – we need you to join in with Coast Watch.
Coast Watch is a scheme where all those with an interest in the coast get together with Durham Police, Durham County Council and the landowners along the coast to take action to reduce the environmental crime, anti-social behaviour and vandalism along our beautiful coast. It operates along the whole of the Durham Heritage Coast from Ryhope Dene to Crimdon Beck, covering the car parks, paths, the “beach banks” and our nature reserves.
Remember if it’s going on- ring 101 (24 hours)
By joining Coast Watch you know YOU will be making a difference.
You can do something that will really make a difference to our beautiful coastline.
