Accordingly, the Padubidri beach would get facilities such as bio-toilet blocks, changing rooms with shower panels, jogging track with outdoor gym and children’s play area for recreational activities of beach-goers. The plan has provisions for purified drinking water on a beach to avoid plastic bottles, composting and recycling of solid waste, an adequate number of dustbins, seating benches, and amphibian wheel-chair for differently-abled people. Under the plan, renewable energy (solar power) would be used and the entire beach would be illuminated with LED street lights for use at night. It would also provide for sit-out umbrellas with lounge chairs, recycling of water through an effluent treatment plant, CCTV cameras for 24 x 7 surveillance and watchtowers. Almost all these would be made with the environment-friendly material at the beach.In addition, the services of professional beach cleaners, security guards, lifeguards and first aid attendants would be provided to maintain cleanliness on the beach and prevent pollution going into the sea. Under the plan, the objective is to get Blue Flag certification for Padubidri beach. On receiving the certification after completion of the project, there are plans to develop the belt from Padubidri to Kaup with facilities including hotels, home-stays and resorts for tourists to reside. Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change is monitoring the technical bids that have been opened for the project.
