We, the undersigned, believe that the beaches of East Lothian should be free to access for everyone to enjoy.
East Lothian Council is intending to levy all year round charges at its 13 beach car parks across the county. This is proposed to come into force in June 2007. The implementation of these charges will discourage people from East Lothian and beyond from enjoying this wonderful natural asset and will most penalise those who cannot afford the charges.
East Lothian Council actively encourages the community to take part in healthy, outdoors activities. These charges directly penalise those who wish to participate in these.
We ask that the council should overturn the decision to charge for the use of these car parks and hence encourage people to take maximum advantage of our wonderful beaches.
