Parking enforcement returns in Wrexham town centre after a week of warnings
Parking enforcement in Wrexham town centre has restarted this week.
It comes after the local authority said that a “small minority of drivers” had been leaving their cars on pavements and in the pedestrianised areas for extended periods of time.
During lockdown enforcement did not take place as it was “not a critical service at that time”.
However a spokesperson for Wrexham Council said as people begin “returning to a more normal, albeit different, routine we can’t let this continue as we need to pay attention to public safety as Wrexham gets busier.”
As a result enforcement officers have been in the town and issuing fines since Monday to anyone who is found not parking correctly or legally, misusing loading bays or disabled parking spaces.
Last week officers had been out and about offering advice and warning letters to everyone found not parking correctly – but from this week parking tickets will be issued instead.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Pritchard, said: “Please park responsibly and in designated parking areas only.
“Car parking in council run town centre car parks remains free until the end of September so there’s no excuse.”
