Town Centre Regeneration
Flintshire is in North East Wales, bordered on the North by the Dee estuary and adjacent to the counties of Denbighshire and Wrexham and the English counties of Cheshire West and Chester and Wirral. Although perceived as a primarily industrial region, Flintshire is predominately rural and maintains a diverse town offering: from the market towns of Holywell and Mold, to the more industrial towns of Connah’s Quay, Buckley, Flint, Queensferry, Saltney and Shotton. The County is home to major companies including but not limited to, Airbus UK, Tata Steel and moneysupermarket.com.
Towns within the region have adapted to changing social and economic trends, with fewer empty properties than the national average.
Flintshire has a range of historical and cultural sites of importance from Holywell’s St Winefrid’s Well to Flint castle and the industrial heritage along the Flintshire coast. The County has a diverse food and drink provision, with a range of high quality food and produce companies, an annual food festival and diverse food groups. This heritage, food and culture come together in a range of events to compliment the region.
