Introduction of Car Parking Charges

Published: 17/08/2015

A county wide car parking strategy which includes the introduction of parking charges at all viable County Council owned town car parks was approved by the Councils Cabinet in April. The new strategy will provide a consistent approach to off-street parking in town car parks. Parking measures and enforcement are key tools in managing an effective highway network and helping to avoid congestion. Effectively managing off street parking is essential to help maintain the vibrancy and vitality of a town. Charging for parking will be implemented on a phased approach throughout the county between now and the end of the year. Charging will be introduced in Buckley on Monday 17 August with new charging tariffs in Mold Town Centre. The timescale for the reminder of the county is as follows: September - Holywell October – Flint, Connah’s Quay, Queensferry, Shotton Timescale to be confirmed – County Hall, Mold The full list of towns and affected car parks, along with tariffs and charging hours is available on the Council’s website. There are no plans to introduce charges for disabled car users at Council car parks in designated disabled parking bays. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment and Deputy Leader, said: The Car Parking Strategy is being introduced as part of our challenge to find efficiencies in the order of £18+m in the coming financial year. We have modified the original proposals to take account of the main concerns raised during consultations, and I would like to thank all those who shared their views.”
