Parking of motorbikes
Off Street Restrictions
When parking in a Pay and Display Car Park the driver must park in a bay and the relevant fee must be paid and the P&D ticket retained by the rider; if there is no means of displaying the P&D ticket on the motor cycle.
It is expected, that the motorbike rider adheres to all conditions as stated on the Pay & Display machine and ensures that the vehicle is parked wholly within an official marked bay, as failing to adhere to these regulations may result in the issuing of an Penalty Charge Notice.
There is no secure motorbike parking however, we have two bays lined specifically to accommodate motorbike only parking (these are located in New Street Car Park, Mold). Whilst some of our car parks have CCTV camera’s they are not dedicated to specific areas and the camera is moved remotely at the discretion of the CCTV office
It is also expected that motorbike rider adhere to the time limits set in limited waiting bays.
All motorbikes must ensure that they park in accordance with the restrictions in place, and not park on the pavements causing an obstruction.
No motorbikes are permitted to park on a pedestrian zone during the prescribed hours, all motorbikes must adhere to the Traffic Regulation Orders as appropriately lined and signed where necessary on site.
