BEACH OPERATORS want town hall meetings on the proposed Sandy Lane Beach Regeneration and Marine Rejuvenation Project.

They said the project, which is being facilitated by Beach Regeneration Incorporated (BRI) and entails installing breakwaters along Sandy Lane Bay and the adjacent headlands, could destroy the beach and business.

A recent application by the BRI to the Town and Country Development Planning Office triggered an environmental impact assessment (EIA) report which was made available for public comment between March 25 and April 21.

Surf instructor Sam Inniss, who began a petition against the project in November 2014, said the EIA was long overdue but might not address stakeholders’ concerns about destroying the beach.
