We had a meeting with the Restoration people yesterday, who showed us all the maps etc. There will be a walkway around Folkestone and Turners Point. Various Breakwaters ( false reeefs ) and groynes outside Sandpiper and around to just north of Surfside where there will be a little Headland built between Surfside and the Life Guard hut for you to sit on and survey the Bay.

Extra sand will be laid down after all the work is done and we ( Mango Bay and Palm Beach) should have a great beach by next season. The artist's impression looks really impressive.

What will be more impressive is "if" the work starts and is finished in the projected timeline. :-)

Slightly off topic - have they built the beach access walkway just south of the Beach House (on the old Chefette property)? They were doing some prelim work before we left in early April. Some of the work included cutting down a great old tree (Sad).

There already is a beach access just below where the Regent was Kawarthapete, I know it says it is closed, but that sign has been there since the walkway was built, and it isn't really. I know of no other access planned.

The plans are to build houses where Chefette and the Regent were.

Hi Westiegal, I know of the access you mentioned. However in April I was told that as part of deal to build the houses where Chefette and the Regent were, was that there would be another access on north side of them and they had started digging out the area when just before I left.

Oh ok, I saw no sign of it in May, but I'll look in August. Meanwhile, Babiface is going tomorrow, if she sees this, she can check for you.
