Park Authority headquarters to reopen to the public

Posted On : 01/09/2020

The Llanion Park headquarters of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority will reopen to members of the public on an appointments-only basis from Wednesday 2 September.

The office has been closed to visitors since coronavirus restrictions were introduced in March.

From September onwards, as part of a phased reopening, members of the public will be able to book appointments to visit Llanion HQ on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and 4pm.

Phone lines will be open every day between 9am and 5pm.

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.

Appointments will be available, however, to view planning documents. All planning applications since April 2019 are available to view on our website via the Search Planning Applications page, please view applications on our website where possible.

Chief Executive of the Park Authority Tegryn Jones said:

“After such a long period of lockdown, we appreciate that members of the public and stakeholders will be keen to resume some kind of normality. It is critical, however, that we strike the right balance between meeting that demand and ensuring that the complex re-opening process is carried out safely and line with the many challenges resulting from this unprecedented health crisis.

“Where possible, we will find new ways of doing things based on what has been learned from lockdown, which has seen an incredibly successful move to agile working and closer than ever collaboration between the Park Authority, Pembrokeshire County Council, other outdoor and tourism-based agencies and communities themselves.”
