Friends Respond to continuing Consultations from the Welsh Government & Local Planning Authorities
Following the delegation of new legislative powers to the Welsh Government, they have announced a range of proposed new Bills during the next few years which could affect the Welsh National Parks. Accordinly, the Friends are closely monitoring any new proposals and responding to them where appropriate as and when the consultation documents are launched. The Friends also respond to consultation documents from other bodies and local Planning Authorites. Whilst they generally do not interfere with individual planning applications, if considered to have a wider impact on the National Park as a whole, they may also consider lodging an objection.

Friends Campaign to extend the Boundary of the National Park over the Sea.
For some time, the Friends have held the view that the boundaries of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park should be extended to cover the sea and marine areas surrounding the Park.
In a recent letter to the Minister for Environment and Sustainable development, they have urged that serious consideration be given to extending the boundaries largely because they believe that an integrated approach to managing our landscapes and their marine and coastal hinterlands will pay dividends for both.
