We hold the land in trust for our children, in 2006 this is desperately important at a time of population growth, gross commercial pressure and an increasing lack of control of and information about planning decisions.
With the proposed changes by the Wales Assembly and detailed and unaccountable legislation from the E.U. it is impossible for one person to keep up with all the changes, this site is to share information so that decisions can be examined in an informed manner. It will only be as good as its postings.
Pembroke National Park, Pembrokeshire County Council, and Blairs devolution of control of SSIs and Conservation areas to local groups which may have enthusiasm but rarely have the knowledge to reach decisions about the competing priorities of access and use and their long term conservation.
Pembroke Town has all these problems, in the past decisions have been made by dominating pressure groups often with no specialist knowledge.
The result can be seen. The changes in process will destroy any historic or cultural value which may be left.
