DENBIGHSHIRE County Council is advising residents of its intention to welcome visitors this summer.
With a busy summer expected, the Council is trying to manage the increase in the number of visitors and has made a number of preparations.
Additional parking spaces have been created at Moel Famau and Horseshoe Falls, Llangollen, while additional rangers are deployed to locations of beauty including Loggerheads County Parks and Moel Famau and Horseshoe Falls to provide information, support visitors and help deal with problems.
Additional street cleaning measures will be put in place during the summer months with a focus on busy areas of cities and parks, while increased emptying of trash cans will be in effect in tourist hot spots.
The Council is also working with regional partners to share messages across the border on regulatory differences between England and Wales after July 19.
Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, Head of Denbighshire County Council, said: ‘Tourism contributes £ 552million a year to the Denbighshire economy and we want people to come to Denbighshire this summer and return year after year. , it is therefore important that we make the county safe and welcoming to visitors while giving residents the reassurance that they are staying safe.
“We have allocated additional resources during the summer months to deal with the situation.
“We ask people to plan ahead before visiting, to think about avoiding areas or peak times, and to have a Plan B if things seem busy.
“It’s important to always park responsibly in designated areas and respect the countryside, this includes keeping dogs on a leash and bringing picnics rather than disposable barbecues.
“We also remind people to be respectful to those who work to ensure the safety and enjoyment of visitors and residents.
“It is important that we all make the most of the summer and make the most of our freedoms, but we must remember that Covid-19 is not gone and act safely, responsibly and respectfully. ”
Residents and visitors are reminded that parking restrictions are important both for road safety and to ensure fair renewal of parking spaces.
Motorists who do not obey the parking restrictions may receive a penalty notice.
Council developed its Destination Management Plan in partnership with tourism businesses across the county and coordinated activities to ensure a positive experience for visitors, residents and businesses this summer.
This includes encouraging visitors to plan, prepare and book in advance, coastal safety tips and outdoor safety messages while social media graphics have been produced for businesses and tourism ambassadors. .
