The Port of Milford Haven has begun a public consultation on its Milford Dock Master Plan. The development at Milford Dock is an exciting opportunity to provide a new waterfront destination that will benefit the marina and fishing industry as well as the centre of Milford and the wider community. The creation of high quality buildings and spaces will nurture the existing communities around the marina and will enhance the character of the area with a clear legible structure and distinctive environment.
An outline planning application for the comprehensive mixed use redevelopment of Wales’ largest fishing port was submitted to Pembrokeshire County Council on 30 May. The proposals comprise up to 21,904 sq m of mixed use, commercial, retail and fishing related floorspace, as well as providing up to 160 new residential properties, up to 70 marina berths and replacement boat yards.
The outline planning application, if approved, will see an investment of £70m, creating quality leisure and entertainment attractions for residents and visitors to Pembrokeshire as well as first class facilities for the fishing community. Additionally, the scheme will deliver major economic benefits to Milford Haven, as well as the wider Pembrokeshire economy, through the creation of new employment opportunities and the retention of retail expenditure currently lost to other centres further afield.
