Access to Lighthouse Beach has been closed by the new owner so the Kingswear Parish Council has had to

applied to register Lighthouse Beach under the Commons Act 2006 in order to re-establish Lighthouse Beach as

a public space.   An application has been accepted and pre-inquiry meeting has been set for Wednesday

11th July with the full public inquiry to follow on the 13th to 16th November.


If you are interested in the background please click on The History of Lighthouse Beach.  Between 1894 and 1999

there are 94 references to Lighthouse Beach in the Parish Council minutes which show that the public have enjoyed

use of the beach as of right for at least 140 years.


The village must be fully legally represented at both pre-inquiry and full inquiry hearings and the Parish Council

now appealing for donations to help with the funding.  If you are able to help with the expense of being represented

please send your donation to:
