Plans to extend Glan Clwyd Hospital's Park and Ride service for further 12 months

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is extending the Park and Ride service operating at Glan Clwyd Hospital for an additional 12 months , while plans for long-term improvements to parking provision at the hospital take shape.

The Park and Ride service was originally introduced as a temporary measure to support parking on site while work took place to remove asbestos and renovate the hospital, and the current arrangements had been due to cease at the end of this month.

A review of parking demand and capacity at Glan Clwyd Hospital is now nearing completion.

In light of the ongoing review of parking on site, the Health Board is retaining a park and ride service beyond 31 March 2020, pending the progression of a Business Case to Welsh Government for additional new parking capacity on site.

Rod Taylor, Director of Estates and Facilities, said: “We continue to ask visitors to help us to reduce the impact of traffic on site.

“Visitors are urged to consider using public transport where possible, and to take into account the time needed to find a parking space when planning a visit to the site.

“We ask staff to consider looking into car-sharing arrangements to help free up parking spaces. Staff can also access the cycle to work scheme.

In line with Welsh Government policy, car parking at Glan Clwyd Hospital remains free of charge.
