The Council is undertaking this consultation in order to understand the experiences of local Welsh speakers when accessing council services in Welsh and how the Welsh language is used on a daily basis. For this consultation we want to gather information and views from Non-Welsh Speakers, New Welsh Speakers and pupils in our Welsh schools to get a broader picture of how the language is being used in Wrexham.  We will run this consultation again in 2025 and 2026 to compare the findings.   We would also like your views and suggestions on what you would like to see at the National Eisteddfod Wrecsam 2025!

View more details for consultation Re-introduction of car parking charges in council operated car parks in Wrexham city centre Re-introduction of car parking charges in council operated car parks in Wrexham city centre Wrexham County Borough Council 09 Feb 2024 08 Mar 2024
Why are we doing this?

Wrexham County Borough Council are consulting on the re-introduction of car park charges in council operated car parks in Wrexham city centre (excluding Tŷ Pawb) from 1st April 2024.

Disabled badge holders will still be able to park free of charge at all Council operated car parks in Wrexham city centre.

The proposed car parking charges from 1st April 2024 are as follows for all council operated car parks in Wrexham city centre (excluding Tŷ Pawb):

Long stay car parks

From midnight to 11am

0 - 2 hours - £1.50

All day - £3.00

From 11am – midnight

0 - 2 hours - £1.50

All day - £2.00

Short stay car parks 

From midnight to 11am

0 -2 hours - £1.50

0 -3 hours - £3.00

From 11am – midnight

0 - 2 hours - £1.50

*Maximum stay three hours

What we found out

The Council received a considerable number of responses to the consultation regarding the re-introduction of parking charges in the Council’s city centre car parks. We want to thank everyone who took the time to share their thoughts and views on the matter.

A number of suggestions/comments made were for things that are already in place in the car parks or city centre and are available to the public now such as season tickets for long stay parking in Waterworld and Crescent Road car parks, both of which give a modest saving if used 5 days a week and short stay free parking in limited waiting bays that can be found at a number of conveniently placed locations across the city.  Pay and display tickets are already transferable between the short stay car parks and disabled can park for free without a time limit in any car park which is remaining the same.

What difference has it made?

There are ongoing discussions in relation to Freedom Leisure membership concessions and discussions are already occurring in relation to Council staff and member parking arrangements. It was also noted that there is support for future considerations such as park and ride and other parking management schemes.

Whilst the majority of respondee’s wanted the free parking arrangements to remain unchanged, that is simply not possible given the financial situation being faced by Wrexham Council and the decision has been made to –re-introduce the parking charges as proposed from 1 April 2024.

Once again thank you for taking the time to share your views and thoughts.
