DETAILS of a five-story, 100-bed hotel in Milford Haven have received planning permission.
Last month, a Milford Haven city councilor criticized the length of time it had taken for a planning decision to be made regarding Milford Haven Harbor’s request for a hotel as part of the marina’s redevelopment plans.
Councilors also questioned the hotel’s design, which got a master plan in 2019, with the reserved materials plan first discussed by the planning committee on March 10.
A proposed site visit was canceled due to containment.
Permission was given in November last year to demolish a number of buildings on the waterfront to make way for development.
The five-storey hotel will have 100 rooms over four floors, with a floor space of 4,286 m² and a height of 22 m, on land partly occupied by the Burnyeates building which will be demolished.
There is also a plan for the public space including the ‘museum square’ and built-in play possibilities, sculptural art installations, equipment and seating.
At an emergency committee in March, it was agreed that the delegated authority to make a decision, once ecological issues were resolved, would be given to Dr Steven Jones, director of community services.
Conditional approval was issued on July 9.
A request for 89-space parking, bicycle and motorbike spaces for a temporary period of up to five years, to serve the future development of Milford’s waterfront, including the hotel, has also been approved.
