Visitors to St Abbs will soon have to pay all the year round to use the local car parks.
Borders Council executive members have backed a report recommending that the seasonal charging policy should be dropped.
Costs will rise, with the minimum fee now £1 for up to one hour's parking.
Local councillor Jim Fullarton said divers visiting the town took up parking facilities for extended periods so a balance needed to be struck.
Previous charges had run from March to October and had a minimum fee of 50p an hour, with a £7 fee for more than seven hours.
