Introduction of Car Parking Charges
A county wide car parking strategy which includes the introduction of parking
charges at all viable County Council owned town car parks was approved by the
Councils Cabinet in April. The new strategy will provide a consistent
approach to off-street parking in town car parks.
Parking measures and enforcement are key tools in managing an effective highway
network and helping to avoid congestion. Effectively managing off street
parking is essential to help maintain the vibrancy and vitality of a town.
Charging for parking will be implemented on a phased approach throughout the
county between now and the end of the year. Charging will be introduced in
Buckley on Monday 17 August with new charging tariffs in Mold Town Centre.
The timescale for the reminder of the county is as follows:
September - Holywell
October – Flint, Connah’s Quay, Queensferry, Shotton
Timescale to be confirmed – County Hall, Mold
The full list of towns and affected car parks, along with tariffs and charging
hours is available on the Council’s website.
There are no plans to introduce charges for disabled car users at Council car
parks in designated disabled parking bays.
