Due to unforeseen circumstances and in, as always, seeking to ensure the highly sensitive natural environment at Ainsdale-On-Sea is protected, Sefton Council has had to delay the tender process for works to deliver an off-beach car park.

The initial aim was to open the new facility in time for this year’s summer season. 

As well as being a popular spot for beach lovers, Ainsdale-On-Sea is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation, which Sefton Council is committed to protecting.

After the Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service, and other consultees, informed the Council of concerns about the specialist survey of the site carried out by external consultants, the decision has been taken to undertake new surveys and assessment. 

The planning application to progress the visitor improvements will be resumed later this year once the new surveys are complete.

A Sefton Council spokesperson said:

“We are disappointed by the delay, but the protection of Sefton’s natural environment remains a priority. 

“The Council remains wholly committed to delivering improved visitor facilities at Ainsdale-On-Sea and plans to improve toilet and wash facilities at the beach are continuing.

“This work means a full refurbishment of the building, the reintroduction of shower facilities, drinking water and an accessible Changing Places toilet installed too.

“However, we are also firmly committed to caring for Sefton’s wonderful natural coastline and the specialised habitats it provides so will only progress with plans for the car park once these further surveys have been carried out satisfactorily.”

Sefton Council also continues to evaluate wider options and opportunities for this Gateway, including potential developer interest in the Sands Hotel, and the future of Toad Hall. 

In the meantime, following storm damage last year, some further repair works to Toad Hall will be starting in the next few weeks.

    Hello, you used to write magnificent, but the last several posts have been kinda boringK I miss your super writings. Past few posts are just a little out of track! come on!

  13. I think everything published made a bunch of sense. However, think about this, suppose you added a little information?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid., however suppose you added a post
    title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Plans to create
    new Ainsdale Beach car park delayed as repair works scheduled
    for Toad Hall – Stand Up For Southport is kinda plain. You might glance
    at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create article headlines
    to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

  14. This is a good tip particularly to those new to the blogosphere.

    Short but very precise information… Thanks for sharing this one.
    A must read post!

Nonetheless, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your whole plan, all be it exciting none the less.
