15th March 2010- The public exhibition took place on 10th March. We felt that the day was a success and well attended by both the local  ommunity as well as the wider boating community. We received some valuable and much  ppreciated feedback from local residents that will help to guide the scheme moving forward and another exhibition will be held shortly to present the revised proposals.

We received positive feedback from boat users on the Haven who were in support of the project and the facilities it will bring. In addition, the inward investment and creation of jobs were of interest to visitors throughout the day.

The purpose was to openly discuss the first iteration of the scheme and involve the community in revisions and improvements. We look forward to engaging further with the community to ensure that this project will be of maximum value to Pembrokeshire.

24th March 2010- The Western Telegraph ran another article on 17th March as a follow up to the previous weeks article. The article highlighted some of the local concern with the project. We continue to work on a revised scheme that we hope will be acceptable and welcomed by the local community, which will be presented within the next couple of weeks. The article can be read here.

9th April 2010- We are please to be able to release a revised scheme to reflect the feedback received from the local community at the meeting held on 10th March 2010. In summary, the changes made are as follows:

1) Dry stack reduced in size from 220 berths to 150 berths to reduce density of development on the site
2) Dry stack and retail reversed in position to keep stacking away from the waterfront houses and chalets as requested. It is now located in the centre of the internal quay.
3) Fork lift now passes along the east side road to access the launching point on the quay. This reduces disturbance to the waterfront residences to the west as requested.
4) Rearrangement of the site to address safety concerns with the interaction of cars, pedestrians and machinery in response to general feedback received.
