WREXHAM Council say they are looking at improving issues over match day parking outside of the Racecourse Ground. 

The authority says there have always been issues when it comes to match-day parking in Wrexham and it is a common issue UK-wide. 

Concerns have been growing in recent months, with residents calling for things to change. 

Following Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney's takeover of the club, the interest and demand for tickets has increased massively. 

Attendances at the Stok Cae Ras are averaging over 10,000 with tickets very difficult to get a hold of. 

With the increased interest in the club and larger attendances, there are more issues over parking near residential areas surrounding the ground. 

Last week, Inspector Luke Hughes said that traffic management measures 'need a review' following a number of concerns recently. 

The council is also looking at ways of improving the situation. 

Councillor Hugh Jones, Wrexham Council’s lead member for environment, said: “There have always been issues around match-day parking and it’s a common issue around many football grounds and stadiums all over the country. We are considering the impact of match-day parking on local residents, and have had some discussions with the local ward member to consider proposals.

“It should be noted that with any introduction of parking restrictions, there would be a statutory consultation process undertaken, which would allow residents to share their views prior to any changes coming into place. 

“In the meantime, we would encourage match-day visitors to consider car-sharing, or travelling to the game on foot, by bike or public transport wherever possible – or to arrange to be dropped off and picked up away from the busy areas.

“Where visitors do have to travel by car, we ask them to please use city centre car parks rather than residential streets, and to park considerately and safely at all times.”
