Scarborough Armed Forces Day - Road Closures

A number of road closures will be in force on Friday and Saturday for the National Armed Forces Day event in Scarborough.

The closures are to ensure that all streets within the event footprint are clear to allow sufficient time for the set up and then de-rig of the event.

The Borough Council say:

"Whilst we appreciate that there will be some disruption caused by the closures, we hope you understand the necessity, due to the size and necessary safety measures around the event, of the closures for Scarborough to host such a prestigious national event."

The Borough Council have issued the following guidance to local residents:

"We will not be able to allow the movement of vehicles from Foreshore Road, West Pier, Sandside, and Quay Street once the closures are in place.

Should you require use of your vehicle it is recommended that you use one of the surrounding parking places which we will provide use of free of charge while access to your property is restricted.

If your road is on the road closure list, you must move your vehicle by the times detailed in the closed from column. Any vehicles still on site will be removed and a charge may be made for recovery of your vehicle."

The restrictions also affect Blue Badge holders, the Council say:

"Unfortunately, you are not able to leave your car parked even if you have a blue badge. All vehicles will have to be moved from the event area. We appreciate this may cause some inconvenience, but this is unavoidable. Arrangements are being made for anyone with special medical requirements. This is a once in a lifetime event in Scarborough and we hope you will join in and enjoy what will be an incredible spectacle for the area."

A number of the town's car parks are also closed but an additional park and ride service will be in operation on Saturday.
