I hope to move to Scarborough soon (I currently live in York).
Why am I moving? The sense of space and the views over the bays. The down to earth atmosphere of the town. All shops and essential services are situated in the town, not pushed out to retail parks. There is a mix of people and activities - Scarborough seems to be for everyone - young and old.
Suggestions for alleviating some of the problems:
Reduce the reliance on an alcohol-dependent economy, eg bars etc at night and set up private ‘drunk tanks’ to deal with anti-social drinking.
Increase an economy that maximises the focus on the natural environmental surroundings such as the coastline, woods and moors.
Don’t become like York!
