Meet the coastal team

Coastal Services look after 84 miles of coastline and estuary in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The team have a dual role as a commercial operation providing tourism attractions and amenities alongside a more regulatory role with statutory and voluntary responsibilities. So what does that mean?

Services and Events

Coastal Services are a customer focussed tourism team who operate a number of income generating services such as chalets and Land Trains whilst overseeing the running of the boat compounds and other concessions along the coast. This allows us to ensure that you can expect high quality services and facilities, either as a resident or visitor to the coast. We also manage the seafront paddling pools which are a great free attraction for those who prefer not to have sand between their toes.

We work with a whole host of partners to deliver a wide range of events throughout the year. It is a really diverse mix with activities to suit all tastes, ages and abilities and are held in many different locations along the coast. The team are constantly looking for new and exciting events and activities to add to the busy programme.


The team are aware that parts of the East Riding coast are not wholly accessible to everyone due to the unique geography of the area - from high chalk cliffs to the fastest eroding coastline in Europe. To make the beaches as accessible as we can, Coastal Services have a fleet of free to use beach wheelchairs which give an amazing amount of freedom to people who may never have experienced the beach or sea before. Running alongside the Allride adapted cycle scheme and Changing Places facilities, the East Riding coast is building a reputation for great facilities for less physically able people.


In addition, Coastal Services administer the Seaside and Blue Flag award schemes and make sure that all of the beaches are compliant with the criteria needed to apply for and maintain the award status.

We work closely with Yorkshire Water and the Environment Agency to maintain and improve bathing water quality so the public can swim in the sea safely.

We also employ the RNLI lifeguard service and work closely with them to make sure visitors to the coast are safe in and out of the water.


Some of the Coastal Services team have trained with the British Divers Marine Life Rescue team for the assessment of sealife washed up on our shores. This means we can quickly assess if an animal is well and resting or needs a bit of additional help. We often collect sick and injured seabirds and send them on to volunteers at Whitby Wildlife Rescue for rehabilitation.
