Alan Rogers have been using the car park facilities at Liverpool Marina for a number of years, as an overnight stop for some of our motorhome rallies.
In November 2017 Liverpool Marina submitted a formal planning application for change of use, for up to 12 motorhome parking spaces with associated landscaping. Their request included the following restrictions:
A maximum stay of 72 hours within any 5 day period was to be allowed.
Electric generators and awnings/canopies prohibited
Outside furniture, washing lines, amplified music, barbecues/outside cooking and ball games prohibited
Other outdoor camping or recreational activities prohibited.
On 28th March 2018 the planning application was refused. Liverpool Marina are currently appealing the decission. If you have stayed at the marina and would like to voice your support, you can add your comments to the appeal here:
