Ever thought about owning your own private island off the coast of Pembrokeshire? Well this is the ideal opportunity for you!!!

The chance has arisen to purchase your very own Grade 2 listed fort off the coastal town of Milford Haven which history states was constructed between the years of 1850 – 1852.

Stack Rock Fort is designated as a Scheduled Monument, reference number PE334, see description attached. The extent of the scheduled monument is shown on the map attached. Mapping of designated assets in Wales is available online at . Also attached is a general information note on scheduling.

Requirements for undertaking work to a scheduled monument are more strict compared with those for Listed Buildings where "like for like" work may be undertaken without Listed Building Consent. Scheduled Monument Consent (SMC) is the permission required from Cadw to undertake works that would disturb a scheduled monument or the ground within a scheduled monument. "Works" include repairs, such as re-pointing, as well as conservation and restoration works. When a building is both listed and scheduled the scheduling legislation takes precedence - SMC is required for the scheduled sections of the building, not LBC.

Significant alterations or development at Stack Rock will require SMC and the application will need to be supported by an appropriate level of documentation, including a Heritage Impact Assessment. We assess applications according to guidance set out in our Conservations Principles. Guidance is available at and

It is vital to fully understand the heritage asset involved, to understand potential impacts upon that asset of proposed works, and to develop proposals appropriate for a scheduled monument.

Planning permission may also be required for work – for which the local authority is the determining body. Local authorities in Wales consult their archaeological advisors for advice regarding potential impacts of proposed development on the historic environment. In this case Ceredigion County Council would consult the local Welsh Archaeological Trust: Dyfed Archaeological Trust

Cadw is a statutory consultation on planning applications. We consider the impact of proposals on the physical remains and settings monuments. Welsh Government guidance "Managing the Setting of Historic Assets" (including how to assess impacts upon these settings) is available at
