THE new Scarborough beach­front de­vel­op­ment is a fail­ure for ocean swim­mers. The plan­ning was done by a non-swim­mer who ne­glected to cater for the swim­ming and sand-lov­ing pub­lic.

Af­ter play­ing in the sandy surf or on the sand we need to shower and empty the sand from our bathers, but all the new show­ers are out­side the change rooms, leav­ing no dig­ni­fied way of get­ting sand out of pri­vate parts.

The old change rooms at the far ex­trem­i­ties of the beach­front are use­ful, but so far away from the main swim­ming ar­eas.

Will there be proper change rooms in the fi­nal stages of de­vel­op­ment near the am­phithe­atre where most beach­go­ers swim?
