PCF facilitate Pembrokeshire County Council’s Newgale consultation at the Duke of Edinburgh pub

Members of the public are being asked for their views on potential new road options for the A487 at Newgale.

Drop-in sessions are to be held at the Duke of Edinburgh pub in the village February 9 and 10, on the hour between 11am and 7pm.

The sessions are part of an ongoing consultation on the adaptation of the coastline and road system at Newgale, where the shingle bank is becoming increasingly vulnerable.

Facilitated by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum (PCF), the event will give people the opportunity to view a new exhibition of the shortlisted road options, comment on a specialist report and plans, and meet the engineers.

Anyone unable to attend can comment online on the have your say section of Pembrokeshire County Council‘s website, from February 3 until March 20, or obtain further information via 01437 764551.

The council is taking a two pronged approach by shortlisting potential new road options and creating an adaptation masterplanfor the wider Newgale area.

Together with civil engineering consultants Atkins, it has used the views from previous public exhibitions to revise and shape a range of road options.

Copies of the Newgale WelTAG Stage 1 Road Options Appraisal Report’ is available to view at the public drop-in sessions and it can also be accessed on the council’s website from February 3.

A further piece of work will be carried out in early March focusing on the adaptation masterplan strategy stakeholders will again be invited to attend.
