Gower public access improvements set to continue

Improvement works are set to continue in parts of Gower to improve public access for walkers.


Swansea Council is investing £45,000 into a series of enhancements along the Pennard valley and aim to provide a clear route through the valley for walkers and horse riding.

The works are set to start later in January and follow on from improvements which were completed in the autumn at Three Cliffs where an old wooden boardwalk across the water has been replaced with a more permanent walking route along the cliff side.

Funding for the latest schemes has come from a Welsh Government led project to boost access in national parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in Wales. Additional funding has been provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Natural Resources Wales.

Robert Francis Davies, Cabinet Member for Development and Regeneration said: "Gower is one of our most treasured assets and we are working hard with other agencies to ensure its natural beauty is preserved.

"The recent path improvements at Three Cliffs have already helped thousands of walkers enjoy the scenic beauty it has to offer. Access to these beautiful locations all across Gower is a priority for us and something we are doing sensitively to ensure the natural elements of the AONB are not only preserved but enhanced.

"I'm pleased this work is set to continue so that even more parts of Gower are opened up to the many more thousands of visitors we expect to welcome in 2017."
