Conygar Investment Company propose leisure development at Haverfordwest
The Conygar Investment Company has submitted two planning applications to Pembrokeshire County Council for the development of its 7-hectare development site at Slade Lane, Haverfordwest. The site was reacquired from Sainsbury’s in 2015 with planning for a 96,000 sq ft retail superstore and associated petrol filling station.
The first application proposes a retail-led mixed-use development comprising: 10 retail units (including restaurants) with a combined floor area of 101,250 sq ft; a 60-bedroom hotel; 434 car parking spaces; new internal roads to tie-in to the new roundabout on Thomas Parry Way; and comprehensive new landscaping, lighting and draining services.
The second application proposes a cinema and restaurant development comprising: a 5-screen cinema; 168 car parking spaces; and associated services, lighting and landscaping.
In combination, the proposed developments would create approximately 460 full-time equivalent jobs, plus 23 full-time equivalent jobs during the construction stage. Conygar would explore all opportunities to ensure that these employment opportunities serve to benefit the residents of Haverfordwest and Pembrokeshire as a whole.
Determination of the planning applications is anticipated in late 2016 and, if approved, work would start on construction early 2017, funded through Conygar's available cash resources.
Robert Ware, CEO of Conygar, said: "Following the withdrawal of Sainsbury's interest in Slade Lane, we believe that our revised proposals represent the optimal solution for the site and would result in an exciting new retail and leisure destination, which would further enhance and support the on-going development of Haverfordwest."
