Stay at home

Published: 22/05/2020

Over the Bank Holiday weekend it is essential that people in Flintshire and elsewhere follow Welsh Government regulations which do not allow people to drive to places in order to exercise, unless they have mobility issues.

Most people are being considerate to others and are following the rules. However with the Bank Holiday weekend approaching, there remains a risk that some people might attempt to congregate in groups or visit public open spaces against the regulations.

The car park at Wepre Park in Connah’s Quay is still locked and the play area, visitor centre and toilets remain closed. People living local to the park can exercise there and local anglers can also access ‘The Rosie’ fishing pond. Social distancing rules must be followed closely at all times. 

There is limited legal parking available at popular destinations like Talacre, and our Enforcement Officers will be patrolling this and other areas on a regular basis over the Bank Holiday weekend. 

The following car parks remain closed:

• 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 and follow the rules and regulations.
