    Tide Mills Beach Needs You!

    We have been contacted by Local Surfer Jon Spong for help in getting the plight of the Tide Mills Surfers out to the wider Surf Community – Jon has started the “Save our Wave campaign”, for people wishing to speak out against the planned development and restriction of access to Tide Mills Beach. Tide Mills Beach Needs You!
    Jon has said “the owners of Newhaven Port are trying to deny local and national users access and use of A SECOND Newhaven sandy beach” “This time it is the beautiful Tide Mills beach, hugely popular with both local and national visitors and wavesports enthusiasts that is to be BUILT upon by Newhaven Port and Properties (NPP). The planned development partially covers over the sandy beach at the west end of Tide Mills. The surf break stands to be decimated by the new development plans, ending countless years of sporting culture in this culturally and historically important location. “No-one doubts that this regeneration needs to take place for the good of the town but there has to be a way forward without pushing a busy shipping berth out into the clear view of the entire bay and sacrificing this precious natural space”
    “We, the surfers who began this campaign are sure that the benefits of preserving this surf break run far beyond it’s immediate value to the large surfing and wavesports community here. The break is hugely important as part of Newhaven and Seaford’s portfolio of tourism resources as well as contributing to a general culture of health and wellbeing in the area". Sussex has an ever growing surf community with scarce few breaks over sand, on which it is safer for newcomers to learn. The value of this surfing beach must be recognised and preserved.
    We will keep you updated on this campaign and urge that you show your support by signing the petition on
