£35k car park barriers get go-ahead, plus free parking for two hours


Plans to put security barriers in place at seafront car parks in Skegness have been approved.

The £35,000 move was backed by members of East Lindsey District Council’s Executive Board last Tuesday.

The barriers are set to be installed at five council owned car parks in the town before Easter. The security boost comes after a large group of travellers arrived at North Parade car park last summer.

Councillors also backed two hours free parking between March and October at selected car parks in coastal resorts including Skegness and Chapel St Leonards. Environment portfolio holder Coun Steve O’Dare said: “We are now in the process of installing height barriers to our foreshore car parks so that we can physically control access to these sites.”
