On Saturday 17 July Wales moved to alert level 1. This means up to six people can meet indoors in private homes and holiday accommodation, organised indoor events for up to 1,000 seated or 200 standing can take place and the legal restrictions on the number of people who can gather outdoors have been removed.
If you are able to enjoy the National Park’s great outdoors under the current level of restrictions, we ask you to tread lightly. Follow the Countryside Code and leave only footprints.
The Authority’s headquarters is open to the public on an appointment only basis until further notice. Please visit the Contact Us section for details on how to contact Authority staff if you wish to arrange an appointment .
Quick links to information and advice
What do I need to do?
Know the latest guidance – check the Welsh Government website for the up-to-date advice.
- Wear a face covering (if you are able to) in all indoor public places
- Follow social distancing rules with people you do not live with or who are not in your extended household
- Do not meet with more than five other people in indoor regulated settings, such as cafes, restaurants and pubs (unless you are meeting with only people you live with).
Plan ahead if you’re going to visit Pembrokeshire:
- Book accommodation in advance
- If you’re bringing a campervan or planning to camp, please use a designated campsite. Search the Visit Pembrokeshire website for a list of accommodation providers.
- Use our visitor newspaper Coast to Coast to plan your trip
- Whether you’re coming for a week or you’re just planning a day out in the Park, it’s packed with ideas and ways to help you tread lightly and leave no trace.
If you are able to enjoy the National Park under the current level of restrictions please be kind and remember the three ‘R’s:
Respect the Land
Respect the Community
Respect each Other
All National Park Authority-managed car parks are open. The charging season began on 15 March. For more information visit our parking page.
Tread lightly in the Park
Please ensure you enjoy the outdoors responsibly and follow any on-site advice and adhere to the Countryside Code.
Connect with nature virtually
You can still connect to the nature of the Park through our social media channels, our website and our online version of Coast to Coast.
Development Management (Planning) Service
The Authority’s Development Management service has continued to operate as far as practicable during the Coronavirus restrictions.
As of 1 September 2020 and until further notice we will no longer be able to offer planning advice over the phone or via email and our planning surgery is suspended. This is to enable officers to clear the backlog of planning applications and pre-applications that has built up as a result of Covid-19 and IT issues.
The Development Management Committee will not undertake site visits while the Coronavirus restrictions are in place. Decisions by the committee will be based on the information supplied with an application and presented to them in reports, representations and other presentation.
Staff do not have access to the offices at present. As a result site notices will be used as the main form of publicity during this period for all applications rather than direct letters to neighbouring properties. You can also view the weekly lists of applications that have been registered and determined online.
