A NUMBER of seafront car parks in Denbighshire are set reopen next week.

The majority of the Denbighshire County Council’s public car parks in the main town centres have remained open during the lockdown period, and will continue to be free of charge for the remainder of July to encourage shoppers back.

The council will also reopen a number of car parks on Monday, July 6, including Beach Road East, Nova West, the Nova rear car park and Barkby Beach in Prestatyn as well as the Pavilion, East Parade and promenade on-street parking in Rhyl. Charges will apply at these sites, with additional signage notifying visitors.

Rhyl’s Central Car Park and Quay Street car park will remain closed until further notice.

Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Waste, Transport and the Environment, said: “As national restrictions on travel are due to be lifted across Wales, we need to be in a position to respond to an increase in demand for car parks. We are therefore pleased to announce that more car parks will be re-opening as part of our on-going efforts to reinstate services and facilities across the county.

“We are also pleased to be able to continue offering free car parking in our main town car parks during July, as we recognise that we need to support town centres through encouraging people to come and shop and spend their money locally. We made an early decision to drop the charges during the lockdown and that position is under regular review”.

Details on car parks will be updated on denbighshire.gov.uk as changes are implemented.
