WREXHAM motorists are being urged to 'park responsibly' to avoid being landed with a fine.

Wrexham Council is reminding all road users of the parking restrictions in place across the county.

Council officers will be working with north Wales Police tomorrow (Friday) to enforce parking restrictions in and around Wrexham City Centre.

A Wrexham Council spokesman said: "We’re reminding motorists that parking in restricted areas or overstaying the time you’ve paid for in car parks can land you with a fine – including at evenings and weekends.

"This includes any street where yellow lines are marked and particularly in busy areas such as Egerton Street, King Street and Duke Street, loading bays, car parks and the pedestrian areas in the city centre – in addition to the restrictions at popular areas such as Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

"Parking irresponsibly could initially cost you £70 and if you don’t pay, this increases as time goes on.

You can find more information on parking enforcement and fines on the council website.

The spokesman added: "The council does pursue every parking fine it issues.

"Please note on Friday 23rd February we will be working with north Wales Police to enforce parking restrictions in and around Wrexham City Centre. Please park responsibly."

The council states you are not allowed to park:

  • Where waiting and loading restrictions are in force

  • In a reserved bay (such as for Blue Badge holders) without correctly displaying a valid permit

  • At a bus stop, or in a bus lane during prohibited times

  • On zig-zag lines outside schools or by pedestrian crossings

  • On pavements or grass verges

  • In a pay-and-display space without paying for the correct duration of your stay

  • For longer than any waiting restrictions


Fixed penalty notices can be issued by the police to drivers whose vehicles are obstructing the streets. All other parking, loading and waiting offences are dealt with by Wrexham Council enforcement officers.

The officers frequently patrol streets across Wrexham City Centre and council-owned town centre car parks.

Drivers will be issued a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) which can be reduced by 50% if paid within 14 days.
