A report, due to be discussed by Pembrokeshire County Council cabinet members at a meeting today (Monday) has identified eleven areas across the county that are recommended for appropriation as public open space.
The director of development’s recommendation has been made in line with the Open Spaces Act 1906 to ensure that council property meets the “relevant statutory requirements.”
A report submitted to cabinet in 2009 stated that the council owned undeveloped land across the county, which was purchased for housing, planning or slum clearance, among other things, but had never been used for its intended purpose, instead being used as informal public open space.
The first tranche of land identified in the report includes seven areas in Haverfordwest on land south of Thomas Parry Way, Princess Royal Way, Flood Meadows, Withybush Woods and two areas at Priory Court, as well as land at Harbour Close and Belle Vue Street in Neyland, land to the rear of the former Albion Square School in Pembroke Dock and Lota Park in Fishguard.
