MYRTLE BEACH -- Beachfront communities on the South Carolina Grand Strand seem to have different views on allowing beach tents on the shore.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that last month, municipalities in the area were asked to get a consensus of how they wanted to regulate the tents.

North Myrtle Beach City Council voted Monday to support a ban on tents from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Last week, Horry County Council voted to leave current tent rules in place. Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach take up the matter next week.

Currently on the Grand Strand tents are limited to 12 feet-by-12 feet and there are rules on just where they can be placed. They cannot go up before 8 a.m. and must be taken down by 7 p.m.
