Due to high tides, Ainsdale beach will remain closed to vehicles over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
Each year the beach is normally closed to vehicles from September 30 – April 1, but this year as high tides are forecast, it will continue to be closed until after the Easter weekend.
However, in order to maximise the amount of parking available, the Council has suspended the introduction of the seasonal parking restriction (single yellow line) which would normally apply to the north side of Shore Road, Ainsdale (from the Sands pub to the beach entrance).
This will not be enforced for April 1/2 – instead it will come into operation on Tuesday, April 3.
The Council will also seek to make parking available on the overflow car park at the Promenade and at the Sands pub.
This means there will be a limited amount of parking available for visitors who may wish to access Ainsdale beach over the Easter bank holiday weekend.
Ainsdale beach will be back open to vehicles from Tuesday, April 3 and for details about parking and Sefton’s beaches visit sefton.gov.uk.
