Over £500,000 has been spent at Seafield in Seahouses and Craster car parks– both of which attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
At Seahouses, the surface of the former grass extension car park suffered from rutting and other damage in bad weather. The car park has been excavated and regraded, drains installed, a stone surface laid and rows of parking bays created. There are 160 spaces and the car park will be more user-friendly and hard-wearing.
Coun Glen Sanderson said: “The work will ultimately help boost tourism and should have a positive knock-on effect for the local economy.”
