Coronavirus update - Angling permits

Following government advice we will not be processing fishing permits until further notice.


Angling permits

Before using any park lakes in Liverpool, you must obtain a permit from the council. This is to help promote good angling and conserve the quality of the lakes.

Once registered, it allows us to contact anglers about any issues affecting the lakes, as well as giving us a better idea as to how our parks are used.

How to apply

Download and complete the angling registration form.

The form includes details of the Anglers Code of Conduct and where you should send completed forms.
