Talacre Beach parking

Published: 15/04/2014

Parking at the beach in Talacre will be severely limited over Easter weekend due to recent high tides and storm surges. The storm events of late December 2013 and January 2014, along with monthly high tides have left the surface of the main beach car park, owned by Natural Resources Wales and Eni Liverpool Bay Operating Company, unsuitable for public access at present. In the interests of public safety the main beach car park will continue to stay closed until conditions improve to allow safe open access for the rest of the year. Natural processes will dictate the reopening of the beach car park to its full extent, but it is anticipated the surface could dry out within two to three weeks in good weather conditions. Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “We know that Easter is a very busy time for visitors but due to circumstances beyond our control unfortunately the car parking is restricted over the holiday weekend. Once the weather improves the surface of the main car park should hopefully dry out and can be used as normal.” Flintshire County Council is asking people to consider local residents and businesses and park responsibly in Talacre village during the holiday period.
