VISITORS of Wrexham town centre are being urged to park responsibly.

With businesses re-opening their doors after months of closure due to COVID-19, it has led to more people visiting the area, with Wrexham Council reminding drivers that parking enforcement is taking place.

A spokesperson for the council, said: "You can still park for free in all council owned town centre car parks but please park in car parks and observe the maximum stay time limits, so that there is a availability of spaces in short stay car parks as visitors come to town to support the town centre economy.

"Also ensure that you are observing the maximum time allowed to stay in the free limited waiting bays that are dotted about the town centre.

"Parking enforcement officers will be out and about monitoring this and will be issuing fines for anyone abusing the time limits in the short stay car parks and limited waiting bays."

The officers will also continue to issue fines for anyone not parked in a legitimate parking space such as on double yellow lines, disabled bays without a blue badge and parking in pedestrianised areas at the wrong times or on pavements.

So to avoid a fine, the council has advised motorists to 'park responsibly'.

Car parks that are free until the end of September include, Crescent Road, Guildhall, Wrexham Library, Market Street and Tŷ Pawb.

Visitors can also take advantage of the 30 minute 'click and collect' free parking bays on the High Street if they are popping into one of the markets to pick up pre-ordered goods.
