In the Debate on the protection of the UK's coastline (NCE 17 May) you said that at Brighton we recycle shingle from the eastern end of the beach to the western end.
This is not the case. Shingle moves onto our beaches from Shoreham Port in the west having been passed around the mouth of the River Adur from Shoreham beach.
There is a proposal that following some groyne works in Hove the initial recharge of the new groyne bays would partly come from the eastern beaches but this would be a one off capital scheme and not one that is proposed on a regular basis.
