NEW figures have revealed that Isle of Anglesey County Council has spent twice as much on traffic wardens than the amount they have received in fines.

Since 2018, the Council has spent £255,611 on Civil Enforcement Officers, despite only bringing in £122,462.

For 2021-22, the council spent £81,415 on Civil Enforcement Officers whilst only bringing in £43,838.

Commenting on the figures, Shadow Minister for Local Government, Sam Rowlands MS, said: “This is an awful waste of taxpayer’s money.

“Anglesey council leaders should urgently review this spend and stop wasting money, especially when the returns are so poor.

“Of course, Plaid Cymru are fond of splurging taxpayer money – whether that is on traffic wardens in Anglesey or more politicians in Cardiff Bay.”

Isle of Anglesey County Council have been approached for comment.
