Wrexham Council urged to crack down on parking issues in Cefn Mawr

Residents at their wit’s end want Wrexham Council to crack down on parking problems on a Cefn Mawr estate.

People living near Ty Mawr Country Park on Cae Gwilym Lane are fed up with motorists causing congestion and obstructions and fear someone could get hurt as a result.

Clwyd South AM Ken Skates has called for action after being contacted by constituents.

He said: “This has been a problem for a long time. The residents are sick of so many vehicles being shoehorned into a small, built-up area. They’re also worried from safety point of view because schoolchildren have to dodge in and out of the parked cars.”

Councillor Derek Wright has held several meeting with residents and council officers responsible for parking issues and hopes proposals to introduce double yellow lines come to fruition sooner rather than later.

Cllr Wright said: “We need something doing down there, it’s been getting worse recently. I am hopeful we’ll also see some action soon to tackle speeding.”

Cllr Wright and Mr Skates have previously called for traffic-calming measures to slow speeding drivers on Cae Gwilym Lane and support plans to introduce a 20mph limit on a number of busy neighbouring roads, including Queen Street and Hill Street.
