Former Saltney Library site
Work began today (24 August) on improvements to the site of the former Saltney
Library at Salisbury Ave in Saltney to help address concerns about on street
parking and road safety expressed by the local community and the school.
The site previously contained the Library and a small car park, this now being
housed in the Community and Youth Centre. The space left will be turned into a
car park for parents dropping off and picking up children from the local
primary schools and for local residents’ parking which should alleviate
pressure on the road network in the area.
The work will be completed before the start of the new school term.
Cllr. Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said,
“I am delighted that Flintshire County Council has been able to make good use
of this area to alleviate parking problems and improve road safety in and
around Salisbury Ave particularly at the start and end of the school day.”
“I am sure this arrangement will bring much needed relief for local residents
and provide a practical and sustainable solution to a problem of concern to the
community and the local schools.”
