More than 400 parking fines were issued after Pink’s huge concert in Cardiff.

Shortly after the show at the Principality Stadium on Tuesday, June 11, pictures emerged on social media showing cars parked on pavements and grass verges on and near Taff Embankment.

Cardiff Council said it received 109 reports about people parking incorrectly across June 11 and 12 with 57 complaints made on June 11 and 52 the following day.

Data from the local authority also shows 444 penalty charge notices (PCNs) were issued in Cardiff on June 11 with Taffs Mead Embankment clocking up the most on that day.

Residents who witnessed poor parking on the Taff Embankment on Wednesday, June 12, called the issue “frustrating” and “selfish”.

Not everyone on the road saw the same issues but residents there did say parking can sometimes be an issue more generally.

“I have always been quite fortunate,” said Jayne Stitfall about the parking situation on Taff Embankment.

“There have been one or two occasions but I don’t see what you can do.”

There is a mix of permitted parking and non-permit parking along Taff Embankment.

Jayne, 65, said she wouldn’t want people to be discouraged from visiting the city centre, Cardiff Bay, or Grangetown.

However she said the parking situation can sometimes be “very inconvenient”.

Another resident who wished to remain anonymous said: “We get problems sometimes, during the rugby, but there were no problems this week.

“It may be an issue further up but… not here.”

On the parking situation along Taff Embankment though the resident added: “Generally it is an issue.”

Cardiff Council issued 384 PCNs on June 6 last year when Coldplay played one of two gigs on their Music of the Spheres tour at the Principality Stadium.

At the time the council said that on a normal weekday they tend to issue about 200 PCNs for parking violations.

They did add that this depends on how many officers are out conducting patrols.
