The Gower Beaches Management Plan

The Gower Beaches Management Plan is in place to ensure the authority maintains Blue Flag status for the 4 beaches of Caswell Bay, Langland Bay, Bracelet Bay and Port Eynon and Horton.

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

  • Caswell Bay
  • Langland Bay
  • Port Eynon and Horton
  • Bracelet Bay

Consultancy firm, The Tourism Company, was commissioned in November last year to engage all relevant stakeholders in the development of a Beaches Management Plan and produce individual action plans for the four 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 will meet 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.

In addition and following feedback from those who attended the consultation meetings, the council will be aiming to set up a 'Friends of Gower Beaches' group later in the year.

This group will act as a forum to look at issues affecting the 4 Blue Flag beach sites; discuss potential development opportunities and be used as a reporting mechanism between the private sector and the authority.
