I AM appalled by the preferred option presented at the open meeting on Monday. Do people realise it will result in two very ugly groynes destroying the whole appearance of our wonderful sweeping beach? These will not be piers to dive off, they will be just chunks from the wall and rocks piled up along the slipway and in front of the kiosk, with a second heap of rubble and rocks put onto the rocks towards the middle of the beach. I am in favour of repairing the sea wall and re-instating the toe in front of it, also repairing the slipway. We were told at the meeting this would cost £650,000, a far cry from the £1.8m. for the preferred option. The repair was predicted to last 25 years.
