The Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) management plan is up for review.
The Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the iconic protected landscape in North East Wales, stretching from Prestatyn in the north and running the length of the majestic Clwydian Eange to the valley of the river Dee, Corwen and Llangollen in the south.
It covers parts of the counties of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham.
It is a working landscape of farms and forests, rich in wildlife and history which is hugely valued as a place to walk, cycle and to enjoy many other activities. It is also a place to appreciate the spectacular views, fresh air and relax from the busy lives we all lead.
The AONB has a management plan, which identifies why this nationally important landscape is special.
This looks at the issues and opportunities that affect the area and sets out an action plan for the future.
Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing and Communities, said: “The current management plan is now 6 years old and a lot has happened in that time, many of the issues and opportunities we face now were not imagined when it was written.
“An example is Covid-19 and currently the management team are working hard with partner organisations to manage the influx of visitors after the lockdown, balancing the needs of visitors, businesses such as farming within the AONB to reduce potential conflicts.
“We need your help to make sure we include all the important issues and opportunities to inform our thinking. We need this to ensure that we have the best possible Plan to help us keep the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty a wonderful place to live, work and visit for the years to come”.
