PARKING arrangements at one of North Wales’ most popular beauty spots are to be revamped to reduce the risk to pedestrians.

Consultants engaged by Denbighshire County Council have put forward proposals to change the access to the car park at Bwlch Pen Parras, between Ruthin and Mold, which is the main starting point for the track up to Moel Famau, the highest peak in the Clwydian Range.

A traffic study carried out in July and August last year showed that on weekdays 200-300 cars approached from the eastern direction – from Loggerheads – and 130-170 from the Ruthin side.

Consultants Atkins of St Asaph say the present arrangement is unsatisfactory because there is no designated crossing between the two car parks.
