Car parking charges in Flintshire
Flintshire County Council has responded immediately to a local press story and
wants to assure the public that it has no plans to charge for parking in
disabled bays in the Countys car parks.
The recent press story was based on a general discussion at Mold Town Council
over the proposed review of the Councils car parking strategy and not on any
comment made by the County Council.
Council Leader Aaron Shotton said: Whilst a review of car parking charges is
one of the many proposals under consideration as part of our challenge to find
efficiencies in the order of £18+m in the coming financial year, no
consideration has ever been given by the County Council to charging those
people who need to park in disabled bays. The Cabinet member for Environment
and Deputy Leader Councillor Bernie Attridge and myself wish to make it quite
clear that this has never been under consideration by our Administration.
Proposals discussed at the Mold Town Council meeting form part of the
consultation process which will take place with all affected town and
community councils before the Councils Cabinet considers a report on the car
parking strategy in April.
