New parking restrictions on Skegness seafront have been agreed.

Following a successful trial last summer where marked bays were allocated to coaches dropping passengers off, the new restrictions will come into force permanently on Monday, July 4.

Cars parking on both sides of the road on the seafront have resulted in congestion and also made it difficult for pedestrians to cross safely.

The new restrictions have been approved by Lincolnshire County Council between South Parade and North Parade. They include areas for buses and coaches, dedicated disabled parking bays and loading bays as well as more stringent parking restrictions on some sections.

Coun Richard Davie, Executive member for highways and transportation, said: “These restrictions will go a long way to help ensure traffic can flow adequately, especially during summer months when the number of vehicles travelling along this road increases significantly.

“They will also help to improve road safety, in particular near the Embassy Centre and Seal Sanctuary where parking can cause problems.”
