The people behind Go Ape - the outdoor activity centre with obstacle courses and zip wires in trees - have drawn up plans [.pdf document] for a so-called Zip Wild course at Moel Famau country park.

But before they submit a formal planning application to the local authorities - they want to hear your thoughts on their ideas.

There's a discussion wall where the first comment was posted by Brendan who writes: "I am fundamentally against this development... I will currently put my faith in the local councils who look after this AONB and SSSI, because developments within such areas are notoriously difficult to push through."

Whether Brendan's comment sets the tone of the discussion remains to be seen.

Here are some further links you may find useful.

There's a dedicated fan site regarding Moel Famau which is part of the Clwydian Range, a so-called Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, managed by Denbighshire Countryside Services.
