Your chance to help keep Gower special

Members of the public will have the chance to get involved in the future management of Gower at a public meeting later this month.

3 Cliffs

The Annual Forum of the Gower AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) Partnership at 7pm on Monday 26th June is open to anyone with an interest in how Gower is managed to protect its special qualities.

The partnership, which includes representatives from Swansea Council, guides the work to conserve and enhance the landscape and wildlife of Gower on behalf of the nation.

The forum at Reynoldston Village Hall will hear about the work carried out by the partnership, and its plans for the coming year.

In 1956 Gower became the UK's first designated AONB.

There will also be an opportunity for people to raise an issue which they feel is important to the AONB, the protection of its special qualities, or the people who live within it.

If you would like to do this, please can you contact the AONB Team by noon on Monday 19th June.

The meeting will also elect a Steering Group to oversee the implementation of the AONB Management Plan.

Councillor Paul Lloyd, Chair of the AONB Partnership, said: "Gower is a special place, and needs us all to work together to conserve and improve its wonderful landscapes.

"The Annual Forum is an important part of the management of the AONB, and gives the public a say in how we protect Gower. This year, the forum will be electing members of the Steering Group, and we are currently inviting nominations."

Nominations need to be received by Monday 19th June.

For more information, please get in touch with the Gower AONB Team at Swansea Council either by emailing or calling 01792 635741.
