How Accessible is Coldingham Beach?
Feasibility Study Commissioned to Investigate
Sea the Change first launched our Beach Wheelchairs at Coldingham Bay in July 2019 - a fantastic edition to a beautiful location.
These wheelchairs enable everyone, regardless of age or physical abilities, the opportunity to enjoy the beach.
We enjoyed a season on the beach but it soon became very apparent, from feedback from wheelchair users, that they were struggling to access many of the areas of the beach that everyday users take for granted. From uneven paths making it difficult to first reach our wheelchair storage unit and newly installed boardwalk, to impossible hills to climb in order to reach the toilets and no access to the beach café.
Having discussed these issues with Scottish Borders Council, it was agreed that a full feasibility study should be undertaken to understand how we could potentially resolve some of the challenges wheelchair users faced.
Our local and visiting community helped us by completing the below survey.
Join us at Coldingham Beach on Thursday 28th April 2022 from 10am- 12 noon to discuss the proposed changes outlined in our Feasibility Study. Our Architect, Euan Whitmore will be on site with full details and drawings to discuss with you.
