Brighton & Hove City Council say ‘YES’
Thank you for the email regarding the Brighton Beach pebbles, apologies for the lack of communication with you after your first enquiry, not sure what happened there.
Taking pebbles from the beach is normally prohibited, however, having read your email, we are happy that the pebbles are being used for such a nice gesture and we do not need them returned to the beach.
However, if you do require more pebbles please purchase them from a local aggregate supplier.
Kind Regards, Seafront Officer, Brighton & Hove City Council
