COUNCILLORS are demanding action to halt the increase in cars parked on roads being advertised for sale.

Members of Rhyl Town Council will now write to Denbighshire Council to see what can be done about the increasing phenomenon.

Cllr Jeanette Chamberlain-Jones, chair of Denbighshire Council, and a member of Rhyl Town Council, warned the practise could lead to accidents.

She said: “The problem has become far worse and has spread throughout all of Rhyl.

“When sellers put a large sign up and somebody glances it can be very distracting.

“I’m fearful something is going to happen.”

Cllr Chamberlain-Jones said problem areas in her ward included side streets off Ffordd Derwen and The Boulevard, off Rhuddlan Road.

Other councillors raised concerns about Prince Edward Avenue, Brynhyfryd Avenue and Victoria Road.

Cllr Chamberlain-Jones added: “I was amazed at how many councillors have exactly the same problem.

“It is something I have been concerned about and I have raised the issue with police.

“As long as the car is parked and taxed and insured there isn’t anything that can be done.

“We have decided to write to Denbighshire Council asking what we can do to stop this happening.

“By-laws can be made.”
