Grass verges on the Beach

Paving these areas has made the walking area at least ample, an odd car parked could hardly be construed as an obstruction. Might it not be a good idea to encourage parking on these areas, as in any case most people do, and strictly discourage parking on grassed areas.
I have yet to see significant numbers of vehicles parked on grassed areas.
Parking on the beach only becomes any sort of problem during a woefully short summer season; then not really a problem more perhaps a touch of the real world brought to the oasis. To see people enjoying themselves on our beaches is a shortlived pleasure during the season. One thing that must surely attract them is the ease of access and the safe almost remote feeling of the beach.
For myself I cannot see why any further restrictions are needed.
BEWARE lest the council use an excuse to remove the last few areas of grass. Perhaps if adjoining properties had the responsibility of maintaining these areas....................

How about a small private bet.
It is that unless residents take action to protect the last remaining stretches of grass verges they will be paved within two years.
Oh and by the way, the wager. Two pints in the Lazy Toad.
Perhaps the adminstrators of this site would care to be the final judges.
