Standardised parking charges introduced from next week

Standardised charges for parking in council-operated public car parks and parking spaces come into effect from next week. 

The changes mean that, from Monday 6th September, the same tariff will apply to all council-run car parks and on-street parking spaces right across the borough. Previously rates differed from location to location. 

The new charges can be summarised as £1 per hour for every hour up to four hours. Parking for more than four hours will be charged at a new all-day rate of £5. It is the first review of car parking charges in Wirral since 2017. 

Annual parking permits are available for traders at £600 per year and permits for use at Wirral’s country parks – Wirral, Arrowe, Eastham and Royden - are available for all users at £100 per annum. 

Payment for parking across Wirral is currently cashless. Motorists can pay for parking by using the Just Park app, by telephone, following the instructions on the meter, or by card using contactless or PIN.
