Chance to speak on future of Seaford beach

Your readers will hopefully be aware of the forthcoming meeting to discuss Seaford Beach (7.00, Friday 24th October, Clinton Centre, Clinton Place).

Although on the face of it this may well be a one way communication to us from the Environment Agency, this is nonetheless a very good opportunity for those, like me, who have a very great concern regarding the beach as it currently exists, and how it is currently managed. I would urge all who have an interest in the beach situation, and I know there are many who do, to come to this meeting and take opportunity to voice those concerns.

In a nutshell the EA still only sees our beach as a means of preventing flooding, they still basically only play lip service to its amenity value- this meeting is a real chance for us, the beach users, to be heard (and, hopefully, listened to!).
