Due to the current weather conditions, Ainsdale beach car park will remain closed today and tomorrow. Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd August 2020.

Current weather conditions mean that tide heights of greater than 9.75m are predicted over the next two evenings and we anticipate that both will be within the small parking area.

Wind and air pressure conditions later and into tomorrow will increase the tide height and therefore the threat.

If people were to stay on the beach late into the night tonight and tomorrow night, they and their vehicles would be at significant risk from these tides.

We will therefore being keeping the beach closed today and tomorrow eliminates the risk of damage to vehicles on the beach car park from these high tides.

A member of staff will be on site on the 21st August to notify visitors of the potential threat and the closure of the car park and explain the situation.
