Mixed-use regeneration of Wales’ largest fishing port
Milford Haven is among the UK’s largest ports and plays a vital role in the economy of Pembrokeshire, Wales and the UK.
Advised on a range of proposals seeking to contribute to the long term future of the port, both in its operations and also its use of ancillary and under-utilised land for alternative purposes.
Providing strategic Planning, Design, Heritage and Townscape, Economics, Sustainability and Strategic Communications advice in relation to the comprehensive regeneration of Milford Dock and Marina, site acquisitions and development potential, and for compulsory purchase of third party land within the Port of Pembroke.
For Milford Dock, the physical nature of the site, the heritage context of the dock and the existing buildings provided significant challenges and had to be considered, alongside existing uses that had to be retained, such as fishing, residential and the marina.

We originally secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission in 2015. In order to provide new and satisfactory access to the dock, we led negotiations with the council and Cadw to enable the demolition and relocation of a grade II listed building.
Through a process of detailed negotiation with the LPA, Cadw and Welsh Government, we have delivered a masterplan for the comprehensive mixed-use development of under-utilised land within the dock, and secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission from Pembrokeshire County Council.
Due to market changes we worked collaboratively with the port to revisit and update the original outline application, securing a revised resolution to grant outline permission for up to 26,000 sq m of commercial mixed-use development and up to 190 residential units.
