Proposed new homes and hotel

Land to the west of Glasfryn Road, St Davids

This website provides information on development proposals for land to the west of Glasfryn Road in St Davids, Pembrokeshire

A planning application is being advanced to provide 70 new homes, and a 63-bedroom hotel on the allocated development site. The residential element will comprise 38 affordable homes, and a further 32 shared ownership and open-market sale properties. 

It is intended that some of the shared ownership and open-market sale properties will be offered exclusively for people living in the St Davids area for a fixed period subject to demand.  Local people are encouraged to express an interest in purchasing a home on the site as soon as possible.

The application is being advanced by Pembrokeshire Housing Association (PHA), Mill Bay Homes, Swangate Developments and Whitbread, the parent company to Premier Inn.  More information on the latest proposals, the companies involved and the planning process for the development are provided on this website. 

Statutory consultation on the planning application has begun. The statutory consultation documents for the application can be viewed here.

A history of the development proposals for the site

The land to the west of Glasfryn Road is allocated for residential development in the current Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Local Development Plan.  Despite this allocation, development proposals have not come forward on the site.

In spring 2017 St Davids Peninsula Community Land Trust (the CLT), PHA, Swangate Developments (the Joint Applicants) and Whitbread put forward a proposal for 75 new homes, including affordable properties, and a 63-bedroom Premier Inn hotel on the site.  The proposal was communicated widely.  Please click here for the information that was displayed at a two-day public exhibition on the plans  in May 2017.

In July the CLT announced that they would no longer have a formal role in the planning application for the allocated site. 

Since that time PHA, Swangate Developments and Whitbread have been advancing proposals for the development site.  Mill Bay Homes, part of Pembrokeshire Housing Group, has joined the development team and will be responsible for delivering the ‘for sale’ properties in the plans.

If successful, the development has the potential to make a significant contribution to delivering much needed housing and affordable homes in St Davids and the Pembrokeshire Peninsula.
