St Aidan's lay-by repairs planned
Parking areas to the north of Seahouses, which are used by visitors to access the beach and St Aidan's dunes, are set to be repaired.
The heavily-potholed surface has long been the source of complaints from local residents.
A Northumberland County Council spokesman said: “The county council is very much aware of the condition of the highway verge between Seahouses and Bamburgh.
“These are not, and never have been, official lay-bys, but the damage has been caused by their use for informal parking over a period of time.”
The spokesman added: “However, with a view towards encouraging ongoing tourism in the area, it is proposed to make some much-needed repairs ahead of the 2017 summer season.”
The parking areas are often packed with cars in the summer.
