PEMBROKESHIRE County Council starts its meeting programme next week following its summer break and first on the agenda is planning.

Members of the planning committee will meet at 10am on September 3.

One of the applications to be considered is changes to New Park Caravan Site at Landshipping, near Narberth.

An application to change the current 20 touring pitches and ten camping pitches to 20 static caravan pitches, as well  as an additional ten static pitches on agricultural land is recommended for refusal.

Demolition of three sheds and redundant glasshouse, static caravan for community use, play area, associated new infrastructure and ecological enhancement is also proposed.

A report to committee states that a number of objections have been received raising concerns relating to road safety and traffic congestion, increase in litter, increase in crime and the need for additional policing and the visual effects on the landscape.

It adds that Martletwy Community Council supports to application because pre-application concerns have been addressed including the number of pitches.

It welcomed the provision of community space and additional passing spaces for vehicles.

Planning officers consider the application site to be in the countryside, outside any settlement boundary, as well as not well-related to a service-village or town.

The report adds that further ecological information is needed especially regarding dormice, otters and bats in the site area.
