Clwydian Range 'should be a national park'
Hotels in north Wales could be in high demand if efforts to hand national park status to the Clwydian Range are successful.
Darren Millar, who represents Clwyd West in the Welsh Assembly, said the area is already considered an area of outstanding natural beauty.
However, he believes there would be many benefits if it is turned into a national park, particularly for local towns, communities and businesses.
Speaking to the Daily Post, he said national park status would also give the Clwydian Range greater prestige.
"I very much hope the Countryside Council for Wales and the Assembly Government will give proper consideration to this request," Mr Millar commented.
He was speaking on the 25th anniversary of the area being officially designated an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The Clwydian Range is currently one of eight protected landscapes in Wales and includes attractions such as the Offa's Dyke National Trail.
