A bid for a share of £5million of Welsh Government funding for green infrastructure are being made by Pembrokeshire County Council.
Cabinet member for the environment Cllr Cris Tomos approved the submission of a bid to the Targeted Regeneration Investment (TRI) programme.
It focuses on four elements within a ‘Haverfordwest Our Green Town’ TRI
bid which supports the aims of the Pembrokeshire Green Infrastructure Plan
Action Plan 2018.
A report accompanying Cllr Tomos’ delegated decision states this “identifies a network of natural and semi-natural areas and features that contribute to the high quality of the environment many of which are within our towns.”
There are four elements to the bid which must be submitted by the end of the month – Haverfordwest Castle burgage gardens redevelopment, greening and growing project; Haverfordwest Town Gateways with Castle Lake car park bioswales and Swan Square Green Wall; Haverfordwest Castle Link’s moss/lichen ‘green Wall’, with carbon capture pilot and Haverfordwest High Street Scape which would include installation of specimen trees,
with associated linear rain gardens connected to the river.
If approved it is estimated to cost around £700,000 and will be delivered over a 12-month period.
