Cornwall Council has decided to take enforcement action against Commercial Estates Group (CEG) over the sea defences at Crinnis Beach, Carlyon Bay.
At a meeting of the Central area Planning Committee, councillors expressed their anger and frustration over the continued blighting of the beach by the sea wall which was constructed without planning permission in 2004.
They voted unanimously to order this removal, although procedure means that the order will take three months to come into effect and CEG will have 12 months to comply after that.
CEG will also have the right to appeal.
