Constant Pressure, Endlessly Applied

Protected Coastal Access at Strands Beach

The developer at the Headlands in Dana Point attempted to remove a stairway providing beach access from the previously approved plan, citing geotechnical difficulties. [4:35:10 PM] Chad Nelsen says: The stairway had been a part of a balancing argument made by the Coastal Commission to allow the developer to build a 2200 foot seawall, destroy senstive habitat and create a gate-guarded development. The CA Coastal Commission saw through this attempt to further limit access and denied the change.
