Save Rhoscolyn Beach!

Imagine A Road Across This Lovely Beach at Rhoscolyn
Please can you use your database in Wales to inform the local people and try and get a petition together to support the following:
There is a beautiful beach in Rhoscolyn, Anglesey which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
There are about 7 holiday homes owned by some very wealthy individuals at the far end of the beach.
The current access to these properties is across the beach although there is an access road behind the beach, privately owned by one of the other properties.
The owners of these holiday homes now wish to have a road built across the sand to enable them to have easier access at all states of the tide.
Most of these homes are only occupied for a few weeks of the year and the owners were fully aware when they bought or built them of the state of access.
There is now a dispute with the local council about the building of such a road, as a result of which a Public Inquiry is to be held at Holyhead Town Hall on the 22nd November 2011.
The enquiry is to be chaired by a QC at great expense to the rate payers of Anglesey.
At high tide the beach is underwater - this proposed road will be continually eroded and will cost hundreds of thousands of Anglesey Council Tax Payer pounds to maintain.
Most of all it will be a complete eyesore and will ruin the beautiful landscape and be a potential hazard to other beach users.
We wish to inform local people so that they can have the opportunity to object to such a desecration of the landscape.
Do get in touch or call the Planning Department of Anglesey County Council to voice your objections (01248 750057)
