Dunes Concern at Southampton

Southampton | by John Divinski  

Residents Association want sand dunes removed by Saugeen Shores Council.

Sand dunes will be on the agenda of Saugeen Shores Council.

The Southampton Residents Association has gone to bat for homeowners on Harmer Street in Southampton who have lost their beachfront view because of a growing sand dune.

President Ken Robertson says they'll make their case to Council on Monday at the special meeting of council in the Southampton Town Hall.

Robertson says their consultant's study shows the dune was not naturally established.

In addition -- the dune has significantly grown since 1985 when the town had a sewer trench dug at the end of Island and Bay Streets.

Robertson says it's the group's opinion that these hills was caused by the construction done by the town.

He says it should be remedied by the town so the residents are not negatively impacted by these huge sand hills in front of their homes.
