There is a large Canada Geese population in our Coastal Towns of Mablethorpe and Skegness
The birds live in local populations around the resorts' boating lakes and have been a cause of complaint from local businesses, residents and visitors to these areas, particularly associated with the cleanliness and hygiene of the lakes and surrounding amenities.
They are also a significant cause of concern in regard to the health and safety of members of the public (as the geese often become aggressive). As such, a management strategy to deal with the situation has been adopted by us.
The Strategy sets out the actions that have been taken by us already and the next steps to take in order to ensure the population of Canada Geese in these areas is managed. This Strategy does not set out to remove the Geese, but to ensure that their population is controlled to ensure the geese remain healthy, and that the facilities provided for the community to enjoy remain clean and hygienic.
