From today our enforcement officers will start to issue fines for anyone who is found not parking correctly or legally, misusing loading bays or disabled parking spaces.

During the strict lockdown a small minority of drivers chose to park where they wanted including on pavements in loading bays and disabled bays.

No matter how mild your symptoms are, you should get a test for Coronavirus

As our streets were not busy enforcement didn’t take place as it was not a critical service at that time. But now that people 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.

Last week officers were out and about offering advice to everyone found not parking correctly but from today parking tickets will be issued and you could find yourself having to pay up to £70.

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.”
