HIGHER parking fees, stricter enforcement and an end to free on-street parking in some areas could come to Denbighshire under proposals being considered by the county council.

In Llangollen, free onstreet parking could be replaced by parking meters, while charges could rise in some car parks.

Stuart Davies, county councillor for Llangollen, said: "There's a lack of parking in Llangollen, so I asked highways to do a parking needs study and they did a parking study county-wide.

"They talk about Market Street becoming a short-term car park, but it already is. Parking meters on the street will kill the town.

"There will be 75 spaces by the new health centre. The council did a deal with the health board so we can use it at the weekends.

"The new supermarket will have another 200 spaces, and the car park study has ignored them. It's a deeply flawed study."

The study says all Llangollen's car parks are at or near capacity on Saturdays and on-street spaces are also filled - often by motorists exceeding the limit.

It says all on-street parking should be limited to one hour, with stricter enforcement and possible introduction of payand-display parking on the streets.

It also suggests slashing the price of parking at the Pavilion, or making it free, in a bid to encourage visitors to park there and walk into the town.

In Rhyl, the report recommends enforcement of park-mends parking in on-street bays be improved, that the time limit in Wellington Road be increased to two hours, and that better signage to shortstay car parks be provided. In Ruthin, it is proposed to raise Rthe fees in the St Peter's Square and Market Street car parks from PS3.50 for four hours to PS7 for three hours, and to introduce a one-hour limit for all on-street bays except those on Park Road.

In Prestatyn it is recommended all on-street parking be extended to one hour with improved enforcement.
