Illegal parking issues to be tackled by Flintshire Council

Flintshire County Council in north-east Wales is to implement measures to tackle the problem of illegal parking in the area next month.

Subject to approval from the Welsh Government, the council will take over the responsibility for the enforcement of both waiting restrictions for motorists and on-street parking from North Wales Police on 1 October.

The civil parking enforcement team at the council already holds responsibility for managing council car parks, and, from next month, will also be allowed to issue penalty charge notices (PCN) to the motorists who park their vehicles illegally.

Deputy leader and cabinet member for environment, Councillor Bernie Attridge, told the Daily Post: “The new system aims to improve road safety, traffic flow and the environment, for the benefit of drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and people with disabilities, as well as the reliability of public transport.

“It intends to reduce the misuse of disabled parking bays and delays to emergency vehicles. We also hope it will help tackle problem parking around schools and residential areas,” he went on to say.

Parking enforcement for individual areas has already been taken on by sixteen councils across Wales.
