Wrexham Council ends free parking in its city centre car parks

Free parking in city centre car parks operated by Wrexham Council has come to end.

The changes came into force on Monday April 1.

The initiative was introduced by Wrexham Council in October 2020 to support key workers and city centre businesses both during and after the coronavirus pandemic​.‌

Since then it has been free to park in the likes of Waterworld, the Library, Crescent Road, Market Street, St Giles and St George’s Crescent after 11am.

But with the local authority facing a worsening financial landscape ‌and concerns that the free parking was being ‘abused​​​’‌ by city centre workers, senior councillors voted in favour of axing free parking in the city centre from April 1.

The new charges – which are now in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week – can be viewed in full below:

A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “The new parking charges for council operated city centre car parks came into effect on Monday, April 1.

“You can view the charges for each car park on our ‘find a car park’ page.

If you use a season ticket for Waterworld car park or Crescent Road car park you can view the updated charges on our ‘pay for parking’ page.”
