Snowdonia Parking restrictions

by from Rob Naylor The Snowdonia National Park Authority, in partnership with Gwynedd Council and other organisations,has put out a Strategy Document which will declare every road in the park a “clearway” and close all linear parking (ie the laybys in the Ogwen and Llanberis valleys, amongst others). The idea is to funnel all car parking into the “gateway towns” and then to compel the use of public transport to drop off points “at the most popular” locations in the valleys. A consultative letter has been out since August.SNPA and Gwynedd Council have promised that the full text of the Strategy Document will be available on various Park and Council web sites. So far it´s not. The cut-off date for comments is 8th Feb 2002. There is a critique of the Strategy Document here
