From Monday, 1 June Welsh Government regulations will allow two households in the same local area to meet outdoors.

‘Local’ means not generally travelling five miles from home. 

It also remains essential that people in Flintshire and elsewhere continue to follow all other Welsh Government regulations including those that do not allow people to drive to places in order to exercise, unless they have mobility issues. Most people are being considerate and following the rules.

The car park at Wepre Park in Connah’s Quay is still locked and the play area, visitor centre and toilets remain closed. There is limited legal parking available at popular destinations like Talacre, and our Enforcement Officers continue to patrol this and other areas on a regular basis.

The following car parks remain closed until further notice:

• Dock Road, Connah’s Quay 

• Flint Castle

• Life Boat Station, Flint

• Saltney Ferry Footbridge

• Dock Road, Greenfield 

• Gwaenysgor Viewpoint

• Gamfa Wyn, Talacre

• Station Road, Talacre

The Lighthouse Car Park, Talacre has also been closed by the proprietor.

Areas where we have had reports previously of people congregating, continue to be monitored by North Wales Police.

Please cooperate, follow the rules and regulations. Stay safe.
