Over the last couple of days I have been travelling around a bit for work, one thing that has struck me is the difference in charges for council car parking in various locations, examples :-

Formby - on street parking free for two hours
Crosby - 80p for two hours
Cheadle - 30p for two hours
Frodsham - Free parking for up to two hours

Compsre and contrast to Wirral

Haven't been into Birkenhead or Liscard since May last year, we go shopping in Mold 20p, Widnes free, this lot of political dunces we have in charge are killing even stopping at shops with double yellow lines, crossing, fences and very high parking fees and that bloody car with the telescopic camera, cheaper to go out of town these days and even to other towns than go to our local town shopping centres.

Fair enough if you like going to Mold or Widnes etc. But wont be the saving in carparking charges be more than off-set by the extra petrol used?

If parking in the town centres were free you can be almost certain that the car parks would then be full up. The complaint then would be "I never go to town because I can't park". I personally don't think the charges are unreasonable at around £1 an hour

Be thankful you don't live in Cambridge! We had to pay the following for parking:


Up to 1 hour £1.80 (M-F 0730-1700) £1.90 (Sat 0900-1700)
Up to 2 hours £3.50 £3.80
Up to 3 hours £5.20 £5.50
Up to 4 hours £8.50 £9
Up to 5 hours £15.50 £16
Over 5 hours £22 £22

Sundays were £1.80/hr!

I think the cheapest car park in the city centre was about £1.20 an hour. I nearly died the first time I went shopping there and had to pay £22 for parking!!

I don't go to Birkenhead because there's nothing there. Parking and rabid parking wardens are just another factor.

I hardly ever go to Birkenhead as I hate paying to park. If going I leave my car at the Train station and go to Conway Park Station.

Find Bromborough very handy for free parking and choice of shops

I paid £12:50 to park all day today at Williamson Square. I am glad the company's paying for it. I would definitely get the train if I was there for pleasure.

I actively avoid anywhere that charges for parking and spend my money elsewhere. I really don't like the principle of it especially when you can get what you want at retail parks and supermarkets instead.

Use ya nod n go shopping after 15:00 on weekday if your going to Bhead. It's free, and there isnt enough shops there to warrant more than a few hours shopping lol.

Or as above, Brom is okay, so long as they have what you want. There is free parking everywhere (except Liverpool City Centre), if you are prepared to walk 5 minutes. I've never understood why people are okay to spend 3 hours walking round shops etc, and need to park 2 seconds walk away and pay a fiver for the privilege lol.

That's true, even parking in a railway car park and using the train is cheaper than paying a few hours Liverpool parking.
Birkenhead Asda car park is free after 3pm as well.
