The proposed Folly Farm holiday village in Pembrokeshire has received the go ahead regarding its planning permission application.

 

Plans to construct a 135 unit holiday village at the award-winning Pembrokeshire adventure park have cleared a major hurdle.

The application was approved at the December meeting of the planning and rights of way committee, but was referred to Pembrokeshire County Council for final determination. The application before full council was moved by Cllr Peter Stock, seconded by local member Cllr David Pugh.

The plans center around building more than 56- themed lodges, touring caravans and glamping facilities on 11.03 hectares of land to the north of its Kilgetty site.

The project will also feature conversions of various farm buildings to form an ancillary café, reception, shop and games room, whilst other premises will be used for warden’s accommodation and extension of a zoo animal enclosure.

Despite enduring the ire of some councillors, the only legal hurdle left for the development is a Section 106 legal agreement for improvements to the footpath into nearby Begelly.
