Snowdon Plan Launch Event - March 19 2018
Following three years of discussions and consultations, the Snowdon Partnership Plan was published on March 19 2018.
Over 500,000 people visit the mountain each year which in turn means that this is Wales' third most popular attraction. It is estimated that these users bring £69 million of economic benefit to the area, but as a result, significant pressures and threats are put on the area's infrastructure, communities, landscape and habitats. The aim of the Snowdon Partnership Plan is to tackle these challenges and threats, encouraging respect for the mountain, gaining a better understanding of its virtues and securing a better future for Snowdon and its surrounding areas. By bringing together everyone involved in the daily management of the mountain, and through collaboration and extensive consultation, an agreement has been reached on how to manage Wales’ and Britain’s most popular mountain.
At the foot of two of Snowdon’s most popular footpaths, the culmination of the Partnership’s work, the Snowdon Partnership Plan, was launched by Hannah Blythyn AM, Minister for the Environment for the Welsh Government.
On behalf of the Partnership, Helen Pye said,
“Snowdon has a special place in the heart of the nation and people have a strong and passionate view on how to look after it. Working closely together, we have balanced the needs of our communities, leisure, farming and conservation, safeguarding and enhancing the mountain for the next generation at the same time. Our hope now is to ensure that the whole of Wales will be able to understand, respect and enjoy Snowdon responsibly, safeguarding its future at the same time.”
Launching the Plan, Hannah Blythyn, Minister for the Environment said,
“The Snowdon Partnership Plan has brought together experience and expertise, and will help ensure we preserve the enjoyment of Yr Wyddfa for generations to come. I congratulate all partners involved and I look forward to working with the Partnership to achieve this vision for Yr Wyddfa by 2030.”
