Beach  goers cross the wide buffer to the beach on Hilton Head Island. This is an area that the town put restrictions on the location of the setback, but DHEC wants to move the line toward the beach. Town councilman John Safay is worried about the areas on Hilton Head that aren't protected by the council's restriction. He explains that the decision by DHEC to move building restrictions lines seaward is "exactly the wrong thing to be doing." He said that if it weren't for the beach re-nourishment programs, the beaches would not be near the size they are now.
