Green Light For Flintshire Expansion
Small businesses in parts of Flintshire are set to benefit from a halfmillion pound boost in tourism income after an award-winning holiday park
was given the go-ahead to expand. Tree Tops Caravan Park in the village of Gwespyr has received the green light by Flintshire Council for an additional 52 holiday home plots. The family-owned park says the development will meet an urgent need for more holiday homes in the region, and will create an estimated £500,000 of visitor spending. Maureen Walker, Tree Tops’ managing director said: “High quality holiday parks bring massive economic benefits to rural regions, and are the life-blood of many small businesses, such as pubs, shops, restaurants and attractions.” Work on the new plots will start as soon as possible, and it’s hoped the first of the new caravan holiday homes will be sold this year. The new development will be designed to provide a number of additional environmental gains, including new plantings and wildlife habitats.
