Whitstable Beach Campaign
Its undeveloped urban West Beach is Whitstable’s prime tourist attraction, but that is now threatened if the Whitstable Oyster Fishery Company (WOFC) obtains planning permission to build a restaurant. That would set a major precedent as there are no buildings at all on it. It is part of the Swale Site of Special Scientific Interest, a protected Open Space and lies within the Whitstable Conservation Area.
