Car and bicycle parking

Public car parks are located in Prescot, Kirkby and Huyton town centres.  Bicycle parking is also available at many shops, town centres, train stations and public buildings in Knowsley. 

Car parks and charges

There are two types of car parks in Knowsley:

  • Short-stay car parks for parking up to three hours (no return within 1 hour) except Kirkby Market car park, where maximum stay remains 1 hour.
  • Long-stay car parks for parking up to 9 hours.

There are no charges to park in Knowsley Council car parks however there are regulations which are clearly displayed in each car park. If you park for too long or park where you shouldn’t (including parking in a disabled bay without a valid badge or parking outside market bays), you risk receiving a Penalty Charge Notice of £50 or £70, reduced to £25 and £35 if paid within 14 days.

The levels of penalty charges are set nationally. Take a look at the Guide to Parking Enforcement to find out more.
