I think parking around the county has become easier since the introduction of Conwys parking attendants, for example I am a customer of Edwards of Conwy, it was always difficult to park for the 10-15 minutes needed, now I find it a lot easier.
It must be a very difficult job to carry out being a Civil Enforcement Officer (Traffic Warden) and I have heard of a few being verbally and physically assaulted. These officers have to be consistent in their approach because if they turn a blind eye to what one vehicle does and then ticket another, this would leave them wide open. By being consistent in a way protects these officers. There is a separate appeals panel that will consider any issues raised by drivers challenging tickets.
I attended a meeting at Llandudno Swimming pool on Friday night and left at around 8:15pm, I parked on the road just up from Boulevard, when leaving I saw two officers placing parking tickets on cars and also taking photos of them. I couldn't help thinking of the owners coming away from Conwy County Councils Venue Cymru, having seen a great show and enjoying the evening only to be presented with a parking fine. What a " Show Stopper ". I will take this up with the department concerned, surely if you are a customer of the Swimming pool or Venue Cymru you should get a pass. I will check to see what the procedure is at this site and update on this blog.
