Consider This: Beach Tent Ban

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - In the coming weeks North Myrtle Beach will most likely pass a new ordinance banning tents on the beach. Horry County and Myrtle Beach are closely watching that decision and could enact similar bans.

Consider This:

When people are on the beach they don't know where one jurisdiction starts and another one ends. There are no walls between the different areas so there is the opportunity for lots of confusion if there are differences in the regulations.

Many of you have different opinions when it comes to allowing tents on the beach. Regardless of whether tents should be banned, a consistent policy across all of the Grand Strand does make more sense than to ban or not ban tents in only one area.
