Stay Safe, Stay Local

Published: 05/06/2020

Recent changes to Welsh Government regulations now allow two households in the same local area to meet outdoors.


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


We will continue to adhere to current UK and Welsh Government regulations and guidance and it is essential that people in Flintshire and elsewhere continue to follow these too, including those that do not allow people to drive to places in order to exercise, unless they have mobility issues.  Most people continue to act responsibly and are being considerate of others in following the rules.


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


The following car parks will 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.


We look forward to welcoming visitors back to our beautiful country parks and the other fantastic places Flintshire has to offer local people and those from further afield but for now please cooperate, follow the rules and regulations and ‘Stay Safe, Stay Local’.
