Illegal and problem parking across Flintshire is due to be tackled by the County Council in less than three months time.

The Council will take over responsibility for the enforcement of on-street parking and waiting restrictions from North Wales Police on 1 October 2013.

The councils Civil Parking Enforcement team will be able to issue a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) to any vehicle found parked in contravention of restrictions.

Its claimed the changes will “help make our towns and villages safer for all road users by ensuring that motorists do not park in places that prevent other members of the public from using our roads safely”

Councillor Bernie Attridge, Deputy Leader said:

“The new system aims to improve road safety, traffic flow and the environment, It intends to reduce the misuse of disabled parking bays and delays to emergency vehicles.

We also hope it will help tackle problem parking around schools and residential areas.”
Parking fines will be £50 or £70 depending on the seriousness of the contravention.

A discount of 50 per cent will apply if the penalty is paid within 14 days, reducing the charge to £25 or £35, the councils website is primed and ready to collect fines,

Revenue from penalty charges will be used by the Council to fund enforcement and administration of the scheme and any surplus will fund local parking, highway and transport improvements.

The police will continue to be responsible for the enforcement of dangerous driving and all moving traffic offences and will continue to issue fixed penalty notices for vehicles creating an obstruction.

Information can be found on the Council’s website at www.flintshire.gov.uk/parking
