A new Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) parking payment system is being installed at Coed Moel Famau (lower car park) this month.

The ANPR system reads a vehicle’s number plate at the entrance barrier meaning drivers do not need to buy a ticket on arrival.

The system will charge for the length of time a car is parked up.

Charges will be £2 for 3 hours, 40p for every additional 30 minutes, £5 maximum charge per day, there is no overnight parking.

Drivers pay when leaving the car park at the exit barrier by card or contactless – there will be no cash option.

Drivers can also enter the vehicle’s registration number at the pay station in the car park and pay by card or contactless.

The exit barrier will then lift automatically as they drive out.

If people drop someone off, “you have 20 minutes from the time you enter the car park to the time you get to the exit barrier before you’ll be charged.” Natural Resources Wales has said.

The old system is being removed this week, no charges will apply until the new one is operational from Friday, 16 September.

Richard Lester, NRW Land Management Officer for North East Wales, said:

“We are changing the way we charge for parking at Coed Moel Famau. We will be installing a Cashless Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) parking system at the entrance of the main car park. This means that you will be charged for the length of time you park and pay when you are ready to leave.

“As of today Wednesday 7 September, the old parking system at Coed Moel Famau has been completely removed therefore at the moment there is no parking charges in place until the new system goes live.

“We aim for the new parking system to be fully installed and operational for the public by the end of Friday 16 September.”
