There has been anger in Corwen this week over plans to scrap free parking. One of those opposing the idea is local resident Andy Ballard: "We're protesting against the fact that the council is forcing this upon us. It's basically an increase in council tax." (You can read more about this in our BBC local news section)

Meanwhile, there is anger in Ruthin too, according to Nigel who has posted a message on the BBC Wales NE website claiming: "Why should the public pay for parking in Ruthin and not the councillors? They're all for themselves."

Just before Christmas, Flintshire Council caused anger when it changed its pay and display machines making people input their car registration numbers into the new machines. This meant tickets were issued with the number printed on them and, therefore, people could no longer pass on their ticket to another motorist.
