There is a never-ending battle along the Jersey Shore over the public’s right to access beaches versus the waterfront property owners’ desires to keep things more exclusive.
The Borough of Deal has for the fourth time in the last decade introduced an ordinance to ban nonresidents from parking on six streets along the beachfront.
Residents say that they can’t find parking, even though a parking study found that there is an average of 10 parking spaces per household, including the homeowner’s own driveway. It is the latest battle at the shore to keep the beach and its amenities exclusively for those who live along the coast.
The proposal in Deal is still under consideration.
