Liverpool City Council is gifting 1300 car park spaces to NHS staff in the city
3 years ago
Liverpool City Council is to provide 1,300 free car spaces for NHS staff for the next three months.
Liverpool City Council has confirmed today that 1,000 free spaces have been allocated at the Mount Pleasant multi-storey car park, with the remaining 300 spaces at various sites near to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
The city council’s parking services team have arranged for the free scheme to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
In addition, the council has also offered the city’s NHS Trusts and Hospitals its Victoria Street multi-storey car park, which has 300 spaces, if required.
A further 150 free car parking spaces have also been allocated to carers in the city.
The announcement follows the council’s decision at the star of the week to suspend on street pay and display parking in the city centre.
The council will take a further view on this new system in 12 weeks, or earlier if the Coronavirus situation improves.
Parking restrictions denoted by yellow lines are still in force so the public are kindly reminded to park responsibly. In particular around any key buildings such as hospitals, care homes, police, fire and ambulance sites and schools.
The council’s Football Match Residents Parking Zones (FMRPZ) are not being enforced following the cancellation of Premier League matches, and this will continue until further notice.
To protect the city’s most vulnerable residents, new applications and renewals of blue badges can now only be made online via the council’s website. If people do not have access to a PC they are encouraged to ask a family member or friend to complete the application.
