The Gower Beaches Management Plan

The Gower Beaches Management Plan is in place to ensure the authority maintains Blue Flag status for the 3 beaches of Caswell Bay, Langland Bay and Port Eynon / Horton.

Swansea Council was granted funding by Visit Wales to deliver a 'Gower Beaches: Managing Excellence' project which aims to improve the quality and sustainability of the three council managed Blue Flag beaches on Gower:

  • Caswell Bay
  • Langland Bay
  • Port Eynon and Horton

Consultancy firm, The Tourism Company, was commissioned in 2014 to engage all relevant stakeholders in the development of a Beaches Management Plan and produce individual action plans for the three blue flag beaches. Following a thorough internal and private sector stakeholder consultation and desk research process, the Tourism Company recently completed this plan.

One of the key outcomes of the plan was to re-establish a Beaches Management Group and the first meeting of this group was held on April 17 2015; where the plan was presented. This group meets twice a year and is currently made up of Council representatives from departments involved in the day-to-day running and maintenance of the beaches.
