Council car parks & street parking operations resume in Sefton
Many Sefton Council car parks have remained open even during lockdown. With the exception of park and ride and multi storey car parks, all other council-run car parks are now fully open and charges will apply to these car parks and on-street parking.
Motorists are reminded that they can pay for parking by phone at most locations. They are also being urged to sanitise thoroughly is they do use a pay & display machine.
The authority however is not responsible, nor has any control over the operation of privately owned car parks.
Civil Enforcement Officers will be following all guidance on social distancing. These officers are providing a vital and much needed service to ensure our borough’s incredible emergency services and NHS staff are able to freely move throughout Sefton without obstruction.
We know the vast majority of our residents will appreciate that this is an important service and that our operatives are simply doing their job.
However we will not tolerate any abuse, either verbal, written or physical, towards officers who are simply carrying out their day to day duties.
Moreover, we would not expect significant numbers using these car parks as the vast majority of our residents should be staying at home, in alignment with the national guidance.
