Surfers cry foul

WITH MORE THAN 300 signatures in hand, surfers yesterday submitted a petition to a number of Government agencies calling for the abandonment of the Sandy Lane Regeneration Beach Project.

The DAILY NATION caught up with the small group at the Town and Country Development Planning Office, where they dropped off the first petition, given that the plans for the project have been submitted to that department for approval.

Surfer Samson Inniss, who started the protest action last November, said he had collected more than 300 signatures from surfers as well as concerned individuals and groups from Barbados, Slovakia, Italy, Germany, Russia, England, Canada and beyond.

He said the surfers had a meeting last month with the contractors involved in the project but still were not convinced that the breakwater to be built at the beach would not do harm to it.
