I will focus on the public beach, ancillary facilities and traffic issues.

To enhance the beach and make it more accessible and user-friendly for the public requires a holistic approach which necessitates cross-departmental efforts. We should spare the Golf Club from this discussion so as not to complicate an already difficult issue.

It is very true that “Island Road is substandard; lay-bys for buses are absent”. Beachgoers and passers-by have to manoeuvre in and out of parking bays and often are forced to walk on the road because the pavement is substandard.
