A review into Hunstanton's on-street parking looks set to go ahead after more than 1,000 residents responded to a survey by saying there were problems.
Norfolk County Council sent out 2,833 letters asking whether people had experienced difficulty parking in their street.
Holidaymakers and day trippers park in residential areas close the the seafront, while spaces are also sometimes taken up by camper vans.
Now officials will look at the problem, recommend options for tackling it and present them at a public exhibition.
“Before launching into a review and starting the production of parking options, we sounded out the town on whether they thought this was appropriate,” a county council spokesman said.
“Some 2,883 letters were sent out and the final rate of return was a very good 48pc - so nearly half. Of these a large majority, 68pc, favoured a study and the production of draft proposals.
“Our next steps will be to discuss the way forward with the town’s elected representatives, including the new local member, Richard Bird, the town council and the borough council.
“The aim is to start to shape proposals that will form the basis of further public consultation.”
