I ran a story back on the 23rd of last month about a proposal to build a new lifeguard hut at Cornwall's Constantine Bay and how it had upset the locals. Now the RNLI, who provide the beach's lifeguards, have reluctantly withdrawn their application to North Cornwall's planners for the provision of a new facility. Working with the council's technical services department they will get the existing hut repaired and made safe in preparation for the 2008 season.
There had been a suggestion about continuing to deploy a temporary facility but the RNLI have pointed out that the cost of moving it on and off site each year makes that alternative a no-no.
Go here to see a nice picture of Constantine Bay on a quiet day.
