Beach car parking 2021 – season tickets
Under current lockdown restrictions, people can only head to the beach if it is local to them for their daily exercise. As restrictions ease from Monday 29th March more people can socialise outdoors, but people should still only plan to visit the beach if it is local to them.
There is a freeze on the car parking season tickets for all Sefton residents, which was introduced last year, meaning they can continue to enjoy the beaches at Ainsdale and Southport, and save money after just three visits.
The specially reduced ticket costing just £30, also remains available to anyone driving an electric or hybrid car, as part of measures to encourage the use of more environmentally-friendly transport.
Meanwhile, the standard day visitor rate for the car park will increase by £2, to £10 per day this year to cover the costs of improvements being undertaken by the Council’s Green Sefton Service and to generate income for the long-term care of Sefton’s unique 22-mile coastline.
Beach car parking charges for 2021:
- £10 per day for cars
- £16 per day for horseboxes or minibuses
- 50% off the above rates after 4pm subject to car parking management arrangements
- £30 season ticket for Sefton residents and those who drive an electric or hybrid vehicle
Beach parking reopens at Ainsdale on Friday 2nd April.
Beach parking reopens at Southport on Saturday 3rd April.
There are approximately 2,000 beach car parking spaces at Ainsdale and 400 at Southport.
Beach car parks will close during certain high tide periods and may be limited in capacity at other times.
