Our October meeting was a long one with a lot of conversation about how best to fly the flags at the Town House. The Council also approved a Local Priorities grant application from Dunbar Cricket Club to help the to pay for new nets for Junior practice at Winterfield. We had a policing update as well as information on the recent Twinning Reception with Lignieres. For the full minute, please follow the link.
At October’s meeting, DCC agreed to take a lead in an urgent initiative to see the issues affecting the East Beach addressed. DCC will meet with East Lothian Council and with Dunbar Shore and Harbour Neighbourhood Group, who petitioned for support. The meeting will aim to sketch out a way forward that will see:
- The sea defences reinforced
- The pipeline made more attractive
- Access improved to the beach
- A robust plan put in place to support kelp removal more rapidly
The beach should be an asset for the town and it is not. Things have got to get better.
