A £1.5M project that would help boost the economy of a rural Pembrokeshire village looks set to be turned down by National Park planners tomorrow (Wednesday).
Members of the authority’s development management committee recently made a site inspection at St Ishmaels Garden Centre where proposals have been put forward to demolish the existing redundant glasshouses, replace the existing garden centre buildings and site 18 timber-clad holiday lodges.
The centre is owned by two business couples – Jonathan and Wendy Boot of grounds maintenance company Boot of Lydstep, and Rowland and Wendy Sturdy of Lydstep Nurseries.
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s development management committee on Wednesday is being recommended to refuse the application.
