A ban on cyclists and motor vehicles on Cromer and Sheringham promenades will remain following a consultation.
The north Norfolk bylaw preventing the vehicles on the public spaces was introduced in 1998. Vehicles used by emergency service workers and fishermen are not affected.
The North Norfolk District Council consultation with Sheringham and Cromer town councils was held between April and July this year.
Sheringham backed the bylaw but Cromer felt cycling should be allowed for young children when accompanied by a responsible adult.
Rhodri Oliver, district council deputy leader, said: 'The promenades are primarily designed for enjoying a walk or stroll and the bylaw exists to ensure people can do this safely and in a relaxed way.'

An authority spokesman said a common sense approach would be used for cyclists.
Bylaw campaigner Huw Parker, 53, from Cromer, said he was disappointed with the decision because the promenades were spaces that belonged to everyone.
