A consultation has started asking for views on how Chichester District Council manages activities on its foreshore between Pagham and Chichester Harbours. Activities are incredibly varied, including horse riding, fossil hunting, swimming, and sailing among others. The variety, unfortunately, can result in conflicts of interest and the consultation aims to look at a number of options for managing the foreshore to reduce the potential for disagreement.
The consultation, which will focus on water sports, including kite surfing, and other activities on the beach, has now started and will run until Friday 9 December 2011. The results of the consultation will be reported back to the Cabinet in February 2012, so that the operational procedures are ready for next season.
