As detailed in the recommendation.


The Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment presented a prospectus for a Flintshire Coast Park which detailed the strategic direction of recreation and access along the Dee Estuary following completion of the Wales Coast Path.


            The prospectus featured six hubs whereby people could access and enjoy the coast.  The Wales Coast Path and cycle path provided a common thread between hubs, providing walkers and visitors with a flavour of the Flintshire coast.  The distinctive character of each hub would give a rich and memorable experience but would be set in a common theme of branding to give continuity along the county’s coast.


            The Chief Officer (Planning and Environment) explained that engagement work would be required as projects were promoted within communities.  The vision would enable positive environmental benefits through managed access to the Dee Estuary and coast.




That the concept of the Flintshire Coast Park be endorsed and it be recommended that Council seeks to take forward potential key projects within the area to support its priorities and objectives.
