The Slapton Line Partnership (SLP) will share the outline plans, based on local suggestions, for its Beach Management Plan.

The SLP is a group of organisations who are jointly responsible for managing the fragile shingle bar that runs between Slapton Ley in South Devon and the sea.

The Partnership has been working on a 'Beach Management Plan' which looks in detail at the technical options which could help protect the Slapton Line over the next 20 years. 

Alan Denbigh, from the Slapton Line Partnership, said: "The plan gathers in a lot of information, including suggestions from the public and suggests the most feasible way forward. We now want to feed this back to local residents." 

Dan Field, Senior Specialist in Engineering at South Hams District Council, said:  "Ten years' worth of new data has allowed us to understand better how the beach is changing and therefore what engineering interventions could be the most appropriate.

"The development of any of the chosen options has had to carefully think about the technical, environmental and funding limitations that work would be subject to."

The public are invited to a drop-in event where you can hear more about the proposed way forward.  This will be held on Wednesday 7 March at Stokenham Village Hall anytime between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
