My grandson starts school in September. I hope to be able to take him to West Beach (sandy version) before he starts university.

Why are people tolerating this? If it affected me eg I lived locally or had small kids who liked playing in sand I am sure I would be down there getting rid of the fencing. Why are the people of Newhaven not rising up against it? It is so ridiculous that a company can just buy a beach and then prevent members of the public going on it.

As far as i understand it. The port authority has accepted that the beach is under village green status. However before this status was achieved the port authority removed the steps and access to the beach. Now the beach is protected the port authority is under no obligation to rebuild the steps or re-provide access as they were removed while not under any protection. I suppose there is nothing to stop you getting a small inflatable and paddling over from the east beach.

as far as im aware the steps are gone. I have actually paddled it a few times, not to get to the beach but to go from the east beach up to lewes on the ouse. If you make sure the tide is right then it would be easy, but get the tide wrong and you can pick me up a croissant from france.

Went down there today and the steps are still there. If you can negotiate the surrounding barriers and obstacles then you have got access to the beach. Time to bring in Dads Army I think. They dont like it up em you know.

heading for extinction

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
