On the basis of a single complaint, and without any subsequent community consultation, the council has recently erected signs along Cromer promenade banning all cycles, scooters and skates.
Cromer is already notorious as the town that wishes its young people were invisible. The well-documented struggle to establish a skate park in the town is still a long way from reaching any kind of successful conclusion.
And now the council’s actions restrict the opportunities available to young people even further.
The promenade provides residents and visitors alike with a great deal of pleasure. Until these signs went up, it gave us the opportunity to share public resources responsibly, and to teach our children to do likewise.
Let’s stop the council from taking this opportunity away.
