Pembroke Town Hall: Thursday 22nd August, from 3.30pm until early evening
The appointment of architects, Darnton B3 as the design team for the South Quay project is an important step for the redevelopment of Pembroke town centre. .The concept of ‘Destination Transformation’ is a primary focus of Pembrokeshire County Council’s plans, evidenced by the exciting proposals for Haverfordwest’s Riverside and Castle sites. The purpose of bringing back into productive use the buildings and public spaces at South Quay is allied to the vision of creating a vibrant, aesthetically impressive ally to the town’s already established historical importance.
Cllr Paul Miller is resolute that this appointment signifies a crucial movement in realising the Council’s proposals for Pembroke’s future.
“Darnton B3’s appointment as architects is just the first step and their first task will be to present a vision for the site, which will then be tested with key stakeholders and the wider community in Pembroke. We are clear that the vision has to be deliverable within our cost constraints but we are also clear that the vision should maximise the potential of the site to contribute to a vibrant Pembroke Town Centre. The plan remains to include a Visitor Attraction and new Library as part of the proposals.”
With such a rich history, alongside a desire for a vision that optimises the Tudor town’s tourism offer, Darnton B3 are understandably delighted to be joining PCC as development partners .
“We are thrilled to be appointed by Pembrokeshire County Council as architect for the proposed South Quay Development’ said Lead Architect, Matthew Savory. ‘This will be a challenging scheme given the range of heritage, physical and ecological issues at the site, however, the opportunity to be associated with such a potentially transformational project makes us relish these challenges even more.”
“We’re looking forward to working with the team on this exciting proposal.”
As part of the development of the vision for Pembroke’s South Quay, Pembrokeshire County Council, together with their project partners will be hosting an Initial Engagement Event on Thursday 22nd August at Pembroke Town hall (3:30pm – 8pm). The public are invited to share their ideas and suggestions for the future of South Quay and contribute to what is seen as an exciting collaborative community project.
