Wirral

Extract from consultation report.

Is it now the time to introduce campra?

6. FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
As a result of this scrutiny review, a number of crucial findings were gathered;
i) Initial evaluation of the effectiveness of the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order along Kings Parade and Coastal Drive has shown that the prohibition of overnight parking in this area has proven to be a successful resolution to previously reported concerns. The Panel therefore endorse that this order be made permanent following cessation of the initial 18 month temporary order in May 2020.
ii) As expected, displacement of these vehicles has occurred and caused similar issues in alternative areas of New Brighton. Although similar restrictions are currently in place along Pilot’s Way in New Brighton, it is clear that an aspirational, integrated and holistic approach to the management of campervans in Wallasey and New Brighton is necessary, to continue to encourage visitors to the areas whilst reducing any detrimental impact on local residents and communities.
iii) There is a clear need for an alternative off-highway provision with dedicated facilities for motor caravans at a central location along the North Wirral coast. Whilst the Panel recognise that there will be inevitable financial implications, capital investment and significant resource involved in identifying the most suitable site, Members suggest that such a facility could become self-financing or even income generating in the long-term.

Wirral Council are currently clearing out boats from the car park / boat dump at the end of Meols Parade - Hoylake Prom.

They're supposed to be doing it to "upgrade the car park" - I'm not sure why as there's plenty of free parking all along the prom.

That would make a great site

Once parked up motorhomers need to be within walking distance of places where they may spend money locally. Which draws into question just one large Aire in the middle of the area.
