Former Infants School, Brodog Lane, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire SA65 9NR
Historically the site was the former Infants School which was run by Pembrokeshire County Council, but which has been empty for several years (decommissioned in 2006). The site has recently been acquired by Ateb Group.
The existing buildings comprise a brick faced, single-storey block of 1960’s design with varying levels of flat roofs and large areas of tarmacadam (road, car parking and playground). All have reached the end of their useful life and it is proposed to demolish the school to make way for the new development.
The site sits within a residential area with a police house/station and offices to the south.
The vision is to demolish the existing structure and provide 18 new semidetached social rented, fully wheelchair accessible bungalows for the elderly for Ateb as a natural expansion of their stock in the Fishguard area. The positions of the new dwellings on the site are arranged as a perimeter development to one site road with the majority of the trees on site boundaries being retained.
The completed development will provide much needed accommodation for elderly wheelchair users, on the edge of town, and has easy access to Fishguard’s facilities.
Ateb is making the contents of the draft planning application available electronically via this webpage for public consultation. A copy of the formal Site Notice can be found here.
Ateb has instructed a team of consultants to prepare the scheme and undertaken detailed technical surveys and assessments to support the planning application. This team includes Pembroke Design Limited, Barton Willmore, Roger Casey Associates, Pembrokeshire Ecology, Treeconsultants.Wales, Terra Firma (Wales Limited), PHH Environmental.
