A site in Fishguard has come up for sale

Fishguard Site - view from fieldIt used to be an Infants School, and is up for sale by Pembrokeshire County Council.

The site consists of a set of buildings with tarmac playground and car parking, and a sloping “field” behind. It has houses all round, but is not significantly overlooked.

We have visited it several times and really like the site. It is in a quiet part of Fishguard town and has easy access to many facilities - schools, shops, cafes, theatre, leisure centre and doctors’ surgery. The sea and coastal footpath are a short walk away.

The site is 1.7 acres on a gently south-facing slope, and with sight of the sea from one corner. The site is allocated for residential development in the Local Development Plan, with a minimum of 21 housing units, 10% of which should be affordable - we are aiming for 100%, so that's not a problem.

We have yet to produce a design for the site, but we hope to have a good amount of space for growing vegetables and fruit trees, possibly a polytunnel, as well as some secluded garden areas. The planting around the site will be targeted at bee-friendly plants suitable for the location, and it's likely that we will retain all the trees and hedges around the edge.

We’d love to hear from people who want to commit to making Cohousing Hafan Las happen. With a nursery and both primary and secondary schools within walking distance, as well as the leisure centre, this site is very suitable for families, and we think people of all ages will enjoy being so close to amenities without having to get in the car.
