SCARBOROUGH — The Zoning Board of Appeals reached consensus late Thursday on a proposal to increase parking and public access at Scarborough Beach, town officials said today.

Board members agreed but took no vote on a plan to allow 370 spaces in a new grass-and-gravel parking lot. The Sprague Corp., the private contractor that operates the state-owned beach, initially wanted 500 parking spaces, but neighbors objected.

The board is expected to vote on the new plan on April 13.
