Pembrokeshire –

“The Pembrokeshire coast is what you imagine the world would look like if God were a geology teacher with artistic yearnings”

Lonely Planet go on to say

“This wild and incredibly beautiful landscape is the county's greatest asset and in summer people flock here from all over Britain to enjoy the spectacular walking, surfing, coasteering and sea kayaking, as well as the glorious beaches, abundant marine life and comely towns”

But Pembrokeshire has far more to offer than simply being a great place to stay.

Milford Haven is the UK’s busiest energy port with the potential to supply around a quarter of the UK’s energy needs in the form of refined oil products, gas (from the two LNG import plants) and electricity.

The county is also home to some leading food companies supplying organic poultry, potatoes, other vegetables, milk, cheese and spring water to a range of leading retailers.

To build upon these existing strengths Pembrokeshire County Council and its partners are engaged in a programme of regeneration projects that will further improve the facilities for businesses, residents and visitors. Some of the more advanced projects are outlined below.

Leading Broadband initiatives

Being a rural county with small and isolated residential communities the commercial providers have concentrated on the larger towns, now the County Council with support from central and welsh governments are beginning to implement a programme to provide a full fibre service throughout the county.

The Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone Board have also overseen the installation of a LoRaWAN “Internet of Things” network throughout the Enterprise Zone.

Pembroke South Quay

The town of Pembroke plays an important part in British history with Pembroke Castle being the birthplace of Henry Tudor. Plans have now been developed to revitalise South Quay in Pembroke to relocate the library and to incorporate a Henry Tudor Visitor Centre.

16 Milford Haven – Waterfront Development

In addition to being a busy port Milford Haven is also the largest town in Pembrokeshire. Led by the Port Authority there are exciting plans to develop the waterfront area adjacent to the marina. Already a Costa Drive thru has opened and four Flotel Cabins began taking guests in 2019 and in the past few weeks a planning application has been lodged for a 100 bedroom Hotel with conference and meeting facilities. The Port Authority’s masterplan for the area will add further leisure facilities for residents and visitors in the coming years.

Renewable Energy

The Milford Haven Waterway and the surrounding area intend to remain a prime area for energy supply and a number of projects are underway with more being considered.

The Pembroke Dock Marine project is a £60 M+ part of the Swansea Bay City Deal, this includes infrastructure development at the Port of Pembroke to suit the construction of marine energy devices. Other parts of the project will develop testing and demonstration facilities and an ORE Catapult project to establish a Marine Energy Engineering Centre of Excellence. These facilities will build upon the existing cluster of marine energy device developers and the important supply chain. A Pembrokeshire Council led partnership is also involved in the ENERGY KINGDOM project to create a hydrogen energy hub around the Milford Haven Waterway.


Underpinning all of the above are transport and skills projects to ensure that business, visitors and residents all have a great experience in Pembrokeshire.
