HOLDEN BEACH, NC (WECT) - A permit application for a terminal groin in Holden Beach was withdrawn at Tuesday's Board of Commissioners meeting.

Mayor J. Alan Holden and a Holden Beach commissioner confirmed via text message that all applications for a terminal groin — a barrier of stone blocks extended into the ocean — in Holden Beach are revoked.

All three agenda items related to permanent withdrawal of terminal groin permits passed unanimously, the commissioner said via text.

The commissioner also said a new board was created "to work with the Board of Commissioners and town staff to pursue renourishment."

Before Tuesday's meeting, town leaders drafted a resolution against the terminal groin project and the NC Coastal Federation was also opposed.
