Liverpool City Council opened on November 14th a 4-week consultation on city centre parking with some significant proposals for changes. A major one is the ending of the after 6pm free on-street parking. Instead there is a proposal to operate parking fees from 7.00am – 11.00pm and to increase the fee by 10p per 30mins and with a maximum stay of 2hrs.
Obviously there is a need to reassess our dominant culture of private cars and encourage residents onto public transport and less dependence on using cars for short journeys. If cars have to be used for city centre journeys then they are being encouraged to use car parks rather than the on-street bays. You can have your say on the official City Council website (link below).
It is important that everyone who may be affected by the proposals has an opportunity to comment to help the Council understand specific concerns and to consider adjustments to the proposals. Please share your thoughts by taking part and completing the online survey.
The survey will take approximately five minutes to complete. The closing date for responses is 5pm on Monday 12th December 2022.
If you are unable to respond online, paper copies of the questionnaire will be available at Central Library, William Brown Street.
