Motorists in Wrexham are being warned that irresponsible parking could result in a £70 fine.

The local authority says that this can include parking in restricted areas or overstaying the time you’ve paid for in a car park.

This includes at quieter times such as evenings and weekends.

The council has warned that doing so could come with a £70 fine that could increase if not paid.

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “We’re reminding motorists that parking in restricted areas or overstaying the time you’ve paid for in car parks can land you with a fine – including at evenings and weekends.

“This includes any street where yellow lines are marked and particularly in busy areas such as Egerton Street, King Street and Duke Street, loading bays, car parks and the pedestrian areas in the city centre – in addition to the restrictions at popular areas such as Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

“Parking irresponsibly could initially cost you £70 and if you don’t pay, this increases as time goes on.

“The council does pursue every parking fine it issues.”
