Gower Beaches Management
Client: City and County of Swansea
In 2014/15 we were appointed to engage all relevant stakeholders in the development of a Gower Beaches Management Plan and develop individual action plans for the four Blue Flag Beaches on Gower (Caswell Bay; Langland; Port Eynon; Bracelet Bay). The outstanding beaches of the Gower had been identified as a key driver in attracting visitors to the area. Retaining Blue Flag Status depends on maintaining, and where possible improving, all aspects of the beach experience. This work presented an important opportunity to address beach management issues raised in the Destination Management Plan. It involved a clear understanding of the technical requirements of the Blue Flag award as well as being fully aware of its ability to deliver a quality beach experience in which visitors can have confidence.
