Southport Visiter - - Visiter Active -

TWO DIS­ABLED park­ing spa­ces in South­port town cen­tre could be moved af­ter a re­quest from South­port BID.

BID is ask­ing Sefton Coun­cil to re­move the dis­abled bay out­side The Al­bert pub and Tem­per­ance In­sti­tute on Lon­don Street fol­low­ing re­quests from lo­cal busi­nesses.

If ap­proved, the bay would be moved to out­side The Of­fice restau­rant and bar on Hoghton Street.

The pro­posal is ex­pected to be agreed any time be­fore Oc­to­ber 18, un­less any ob­jec­tions are raised.

A re­port by coun­cil of­fi­cers said: “A re­quest has been re­ceived from the South­port BID for amend­ments to be made to the ex­ist­ing load­ing bays / dis­abled park­ing bay sit­u­ated on Lon­don Street, South­port.

“Traders have ap­proached the BID to out­line prob­lems they are hav­ing in gain­ing ac­cess to the load­ing bay due to the ad­ja­cent dis­abled bay, and also that the bay is not large enough to ac­com­mo­date the num­ber of ve­hi­cles that wish to use it.

“They have re­quested that the load­ing bay be ex­tended to in­clude the ex­ist­ing dis­abled bay which can ac­com­mo­date two ve­hi­cles.

“In ad­di­tion to the two spa­ces iden­ti­fied above, there are a fur­ther three or four dis­abled park­ing spa­ces on this part of Lon­don Street.

“It is pro­posed to re­place the ex­ist­ing dis­abled park­ing bay sit­u­ated out­side The Al­bert, and which can ac­com­mo­date two ve­hi­cles, with a load­ing bay.”

The area will be­come a load­ing bay
