Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

At recent meetings held by employees of PCNPA, in Jameston and Bosherston, the audience were told that" it was an instruction from central government, we have no choice in the matter when they announced that they were to build between 250 and 500 houses each year for the next 10 years within the Park Boundary." Another figure given was 1700 in ten years
Despite conversations with UK and Wales Assembly Government at the highest level we have been told that no such instructions have been issued. The only legislation is that placed on PCNPA to identify the need for "affordable housing" and to review it every year in a five year programme.
Any decision made is "local".
Once again PCNPA are being "economical with the truth".
