Explaining the planning process

The joint applicants intend to submit a planning application to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority seeking planning permission to develop the site.

Before doing so, the applicants are required to undertake a period of statutory consultation on the plans.  This statutory consultation follows the informal pre-application consultation on the proposals that took place in spring and summer 2017. 

Following the statutory consultation, the applicants will submit a planning application to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for determination. A planning application is expected to be submitted to the National Park Authority in early 2018.

Explaining the Statutory Consultation

In March 2016, key elements of the Planning (Wales) Act 2015 (the Act) were implemented. Developers are thus required to carry out statutory pre-application consultation on planning applications for major developments in Wales. From 1 August 2016 developers proposing major development were required to show how they had adhered to the new consultation requirements as part of their application submission.

A number of consultation activities need to be undertaken by the developer before they can submit the planning application. These include:

  • making draft planning application documents available to view;
  • notifying the right consultees of the consultation;
  • providing a 28-day consultation period;
  • reporting how the pre-application consultation was undertaken and how people’s views were considered in a ‘Pre-Application Consultation Report’ submitted as part of the application.

Under Section 17 of the Planning (Wales) Act 2015 we are carrying out pre-application consultation on proposals. This website provides you with the opportunity to view the draft planning application documents and leave feedback on the proposals.
