A small car park in the town centre is due to close at the start of next month.

The Rhosddu Road car park, at the back of Wrexham Library, will close to the public permanently from Sunday, August 13.

The car park, which provides eight disabled parking spots, will close as the former gallery building is taken over as the town centre headquarters for North Wales Police, replacing the current site at Bodhyfryd.


With the police taking over the site, the back of the library can no longer be used as a public car park.

Alternative spaces available

Alternative disabled parking will be available in the Library car park.

As a result of the upcoming closure of the Rhosddu Road car park, disabled parking capacity at the Library site has gone from 15 to 23 – replacing the eight lost with the closure of Rhosddu Road.

The Library car park is just 150 yards away from Rhosddu Road. The nearby Guildhall car park, with four disabled spaces, is also open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We never want to lose disabled parking provision in the town centre, but luckily, the Rhosddu Road car park is so close to other car parks that its closure is likely to have a minimal impact on users.

“We’ve also replaced the spaces lost at Rhosddu Road by increasing provision at the Library car park, meaning overall parking provision for disabled users has remained the same.”
