County plans new order to control misuse of car parks

* A plan of the Llantysilio Green car park. 

Denbighshire County Council is proposing to bring in an order to control the misuse of some car parks in Llangollen.

A briefing for local county councillors explains that, at present, parking at Llantysilio Green is unregulated other than by charging for use of the parking place when they are open.

This, it says, often causes hazards and/or obstructions on site and there is evidence of misuse of the car parks.

But the introduction of a special order would allow the council to issue tickets to control this misuse.  

The briefing says: “The current legislation covering the car parks makes it unviable for the council to enforce these areas and reduces maintenance expenditure to a bare minimum.

“This proposal is to bring the car parks in to the Civil Parking Enforcement system of control.

“Wenffrwd car park is a new car park and it clear from officer observations on usage so far that, although it is free to park in this car park, there is a need to better manage, regulate and control the manner in which vehicles park within this car park.

“It appears to the county council as order making authority, that it is necessary and expedient to make this order in the interests of providing proper controls to the car parks in the order and to be able to enforce the areas as necessary.”

A copy of the draft order and the plans can be inspected at Llangollen Library in Castle Street, Llangollen.

* People wishing to respond to this consultation can do using the online feedback form and anyone wishing to object to it can do so either by submitting responses to a questionnaire using Denbighshire County Council’s website under County Conversation Portal, ( or by sending a written statement of objection, stating the grounds on which the objection is made to the Corporate Director: Governance and Business Monitoring Officer, Denbighshire County Council, PO Box 62, Ruthin LL15 9AZ, by no later than 7th March 2024.
