FOLLOWING concerns raised by the community, police officers from the Carmarthenshire Roads Policing Unit are taking positive action against vehicles parked illegally in Notts Square and Guildhall Square, Carmarthen.
All vehicles parked in the areas and not unloading goods will face a £30 fine for parking in a pedestrianised area.
Inspector Dominic Jones said:
“We would ask that members of the public and business owners do not park in Nott Square. This could cause an obstruction and delay emergency vehicles from attending incidents in the town centre. Police officers are actively patrolling the area and will ticket cars or ask drivers to move on.”
The power to book or move vehicles parked in this area currently lies with Dyfed-Powys Police, but an application has been made to the Welsh Government for Carmarthenshire Council to be given this authority.
