Cornwall Councillors have refused an application by developers to keep controversial sea defences at Carlyon Bay near St Austell.
CEG - the company behind a £250 million scheme - wanted to retain the temporary 80 metre long sheet piling for another 3 years.
But councillors voted 11 to 2 in favour of refusing the application, despite the planning officer's recommendation to approve it.
Local campaign group Carlyon Bay Watch says it is 'delighted' with the decision and is calling on Cornwall Council to enforce the planning law to make CEG remove the structures which it says are 'blighting what should be St Austell's best asset'.
