Denbighshire County Council is informing residents of an increase in parking charges in its pay and display car parks – the first to be  introduced in over seven years.

The cost of daily parking and parking permits will remain the same.

Further details of the new pricing system and any local variations will be posted on pay and display machines over the coming days and will also appear on the council’s website: www.denbighshire.gov.uk from April 1.

Councillor David Smith, Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, said: “In Denbighshire, we have been proud of the fact that we have not increased car parking charges for over seven years. However, the economic climate has changed and we have needed to look at car parking charges like every other area of the council’s work.

“We still believe the slight increases provides good value for money, with our charging regime similar to those in other counties in North Wales and actually remains cheaper than others.

“The charges will create a greater price difference between short stay and long stay car parks, which should result in a greater turnover of spaces in short stay car parks. This, in turn, should assist local businesses in our town centres and continue to encourage local shoppers and visitors to park in our car parks."
