AFTER being assured by a local council spokesman only a few weeks ago that the flood prevention scheme would not intrude any further than between the Knightstone slipway and the Grand Pier, why is it that the storage area for the scheme has taken a considerable amount of beach next to the Tropicana, preventing public use of yet another section? The logical storage area would have been within the confines of the working area, not take more access away from visitors.Why have we yet another incursion on to the beach with an unsightly blue boarded area sectioned off for what I understand to be the new location for the 'sand carvings'? As much as I appreciate these wonderful people and the work they do, what idiot has closed another slice of beach area off at this inopportune time. They were well sited on the lawns on previous years.Why is it that the sand for the carvings was taken by truck from one end of the beach and then next week four vehicles are involved in transporting sand from the car park area next to the sand carvings away up to the Royal Sands area? Somebody somewhere has not planned this exercise properly, wasting a lot of time and fuel having these vehicles running up and down the beach all day. Why should we have yet another section of the beach closed while this is going on?Why do the planners not start doing the basics, like co-ordination?RAMON K TAYLOR - Weston
