SUNSET BEACH — Following discussion and debate, Sunset Beach Town Council has approved an amendment to regulate tents on the beach.
The 3-1 vote is to require tents, canopies and other “shading devices,” except for umbrellas, to be erected in a single line parallel to the ocean and not to extend more than 24 feet from the front dune line toward the ocean.
Town council members Lou De Vita, Terry Johnson and Carol Scott voted in favor of the measure. Town councilman Wilson Sherrill cast a dissenting vote. Town councilman Mike Williams was absent.
