St Davids Peninsula Community Land Trust

To underpin the vitality and long term sustainability of the communities of St Davids by providing affordable housing for local families.

Our vision is for the historic communities of St David’s peninsula to be thriving places where the families who live and work in them have housing they can afford.

We recognise the links between provision of places to live and spaces to work; where appropriate, St Davids Community Land Trust may coordinate the development of work spaces that suit the needs of local people, making it easier for them to stay in the area or return to live in the peninsula’s communities.

We will challenge and work creatively around ideas such as ‘affordability’ and be prepared to champion new approaches to construction, ownership and rental that enable all local people to live in good quality, energy-efficient and healthy homes.

We believe that an appropriately designed swimming pool, built to a low energy and inspiring brief and operated in an enterprising and innovative way, would have significant and lasting benefit for the people who live in and visit the peninsula.

On behalf of our members, we will champion the development of progressive policies by organisations with an impact on the provision of housing on the St Davids peninsula.

How you can help support the St Davids Community Land Trust

It is very important that as many people who live and/or work in the Peninsula become CLT members. That gives the CLT credibility and clout with official bodies. But most importantly, it means the whole community is sharing in taking responsibility for the provision of new affordable housing and other amenities.

A revision has been made to the submitted planning application for the development of the land west of Glasfryn Road. The revision concerns the 32 homes proposed for market sale (the Mill Bay Homes).

The plans for these homes have now been submitted in full to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. They were submitted in outline in the original application.

February 2018
The planning application for Glasfryn Road has now been submitted to the National Park. The application can be viewed on the National Park’s website and can be found under the ‘Living In’ tab, then ‘Planning’, then ‘Major Applications’.

The reference is NP/18/0051/OUT

The Planning Application is for 70 homes, 38 of which are for affordable rent, for local people in perpetuity to be built by Pembrokeshire Housing Association, and 32 to be built for the open market by Millbay Homes. It is intended that some of these will be for shared ownership. These and open-market sale properties will be offered exclusively for people living in the St Davids area for a fixed period subject to demand.

Local people are encouraged to express an interest in purchasing a home on the site as soon as possible.

The planning application also includes a 63 bedroom hotel for Whitbread/Premier Inn.
