Cycling path `vital' link.

THE proposed Dee Cycle Path will provide a vital missing link to Flintshire's national cycle path network at Flint, according to council officials.

They are seeking funding of pounds 750,000 from the Welsh Assembly Government for the project.

The River Dee and its estuary is an important wildlife habitat and landscape feature.

The area is an Internationally important wetland supporting many thousands of ducks and waders during the winter migration and is designated a special protection Ramsar site, a site of special scientific interest and a candidate special area of conservation. The path is also an opportunity to encourage people to cycle to work.

A report to councillors states: ``It is a natural attraction for visitors and residents in Flintshire and has potential for informal recreation, education and tourism.

``The proposed Dee Coastal Path will provide the vital missing link in Flintshire's section of the national cycle network at Flint.''
