Prescot Car Parking Price Rises

By on Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Editor’s note: In Prescot, these changes apply to council car parks on Mill Street (off High Street and Leyland Street), Cyprus Street (nr JD Wetherspoon) and Moss Street (off High St, by Ray’s Bakery).

(Press release: Knowsley Council)

From 1 May 2013, car parking charges in council-run car parks will increase.  The new parking charges will apply to shoppers and visitors in Huyton, Kirkby and Prescot town centres.

As you will be aware, the council is working with significant funding cuts made by the Government.  It has carried out a review of all of its budgets and has made some difficult decisions, whilst protecting front-line services for its residents.

The increase is 10p per hour for short stay and 40p for all-day parking.  Knowsley’s charges still remain extremely competitive in comparison with neighbouring authorities, and it continues to offer the lowest all-day town centre parking rate in Merseyside.

Knowsley Council is committed to making its town centres as attractive as possible for shoppers, with major investment such as the £200m regeneration of Kirkby Town Centre underway, the development of a new £2.5m Kirkby Market on site and the recent completion of the £1.2m Prescot Centre in the heart of Prescot.

From 1 May, the new parking charges will be:-

60p for up to 1 hour

£1.20 for up to 2 hours

£2.40 for over 2 hours
