Improvements to Tenby harbour’s sluice sought once again

  • last month
Funding avenues are being sought to seek improvements to Tenby harbour’s sluice.
Works to make the sluice more 'user-friendly' were given the thumbs up by town councillors prior to Covid, with members being told of an application from Pembrokeshire County Council for the replacement of stop logs with sluice control, which would ‘protect and enhance’ the area, as well as sustaining activities; improve the amenity of the harbour, and sustain local employment opportunities.
However, funding for the project seemingly slipped through the net, and the plans never came to fruition.
The sluice gate was discussed recently again at a meeting of Tenby Harbour User's Association, with the chair of the group providing PCC with all relevant paperwork to start the process of looking for new sources of funding to pursue.
Members heard that community support for this project remained strong; and it was proposed that known engineering firms be invited to complete a design and guide price to include a structural sign off to establish a required funding budget.
