Plans to develop a coastal park in Flintshire have been approved by councillors.

The creation of the Wales Coast Path in 2012 has led to more interest in the area, says a Flintshire council report.

The path stretches 870 miles (1,400km) from the River Dee in Flintshire to Chepstow in the south.

Flintshire council, businesses and local groups have been improving access along the Dee river and estuary to attract visitors in recent years.

Now, the authority wants to agree a joined-up approach to help secure funds for improvements.

A prospectus has been produced focusing on several areas covering Connah's Quay docks, Flint waterfront, Bagillt inlet and Bettisfield Hill at Greenfield, as well as Talacre.
