Pembrokeshire Eco Park

Stakeholder Update 1

Stakeholder Update 1 – January 2023

Due to the timescales associated with this project, because of the restrictions of the interim facility in Pembroke Port, there has been a significant amount of work undertaken over the last few months, as detailed below:

  • Planning applications both full for phase 1-3 and outlined for phase 4 have been approved on 5th October;
  • SAB application and building control applications have been granted conditional approval;
  • Agreed enabling works surrounding the required diversion with Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water (DCWW);
  • Land purchase has now been completed;
  • Undertaken procurement exercise via regional framework surrounding the construction of the side-wide and phases 1 to 3 works initially; and
  • Work surrounding the discharge of planning conditions has commenced and relevant applications surrounding pre commencement conditions have been submitted for review by the Local Planning Authority.

Next Steps

The next steps surrounding the project will focus on the enabling works, which are required prior to the commencement of the approved construction.

DCWW, via approved contractors, will commence the agreed diversion works over the coming weeks; all works will take place within the site boundary and are not envisaged to impact on the facilities to the local community. This work is undertaken by DCWW as a statutory undertaker (permitted development) and is outside of the planning permission, which was granted in October.

This enabling works will commence with the formation of a site compound, security works including fencing, delivery of equipment and machinery, and trial pits over the next few weeks – and will lead into the raw water main diversion works.

Further update’s will be provided once the construction contract has been awarded to the successful team – and to outline communication and construction management plans including key contacts during the construction phase.
