07 Sep - North Harbour Beach - Open letter from Harbour
Resident Ray Blakebrough.
Are you aware of the special status enjoyed by the
North Harbour Beach? I have been amazed in recent months hearing
about this particular area and finding myself now at a point where I
need to write this to discover who would like to find out more.
This zone is a natural beach shingle habitat, an area of
Scientific Interest and a Natural Wildlife Habitat.
I have recently communicated with Miriam Parish MA (Hons), MSc
Senior Environmental Consultant (Coastal and Marine) who along with
two colleagues would like to come to the Harbour and discuss the
regeneration and future protection of this beach.
Her team currently has funding to help with this so it’s a very
opportune time to meet these experts.
Miriam recently confirmed the
following; “I am also in conversation with Kate Cole at East
Sussex County Council, and Daniel Watkins at Sussex Biodiversity
Record Centre. As the area falls within the bounds of a Local
Wildlife Site they are also keen for us to come and talk to you
about the potential to restore the vegetated shingle along the
beach. I understand that Kate has visited the area recently and
carried out some vegetation management with local residents”.
I have penciled in October 24th at 4.00pm for such a meeting
and would like to invite all interested residents. We would
especially like residents and managing agents from properties that
overlook this area to attend. If you can attend please advise by
contacting me at:
