Have Your Say on Quayside Development

Throughout April, Haverhub is inviting the public’s opinion on newly released architectural designs, to collect community suggestions before planning the next phase of renovation. 

The designs, now on display in the cafe, were developed by the Haverhub team with the help of local architecture firm Oochitecture and Latitude Architects. They show the concepts for renovation of the warehouse at the rear of Haverhub’s site. 

 

A new quayside entrance, a multi-purpose space with several floors, and a raised terrace overlooking the Cleddau River is being proposed, and Haverhub wants to hear the community’s ideas via a survey.

 

The creation of concept designs was funded by the Architectural Heritage Fund, and further design work will be funded by the UK Levelling Up Fund, a UK-wide scheme to regenerate local areas without drawing from council budgets. 

 

Haverhub directors Gitti Coats and Jerry Evans have, for a long time, seen the potential for waterside development in Haverfordwest, and together they have spent years building the project up to where it is today. Haverhub has a strong community focus, providing space for everyone to come together, collaborate, take part in activities or attend events. 

“A number of volunteers, including new directors, planning professionals and locals with experience in cultural spaces have helped in the design discussions and explained Haverhub’s role to the architects,” says Jerry Evans. “We’re really pleased with the ideas so far, and the purpose of this consultation is to make sure what we submit in the planning application is what the public like and want.

“It’s a practical design for accessing the many areas of Haverhub’s site, and we hope to combine our current spaces and popular courtyard with lovely river views, which are currently hidden,” he adds. 

“We have included designs for the area behind Haverhub, where our vision is that people will stop and sit, picnic and enjoy the river as they walk around town,” says Gitti Coats. “These designs contribute to the regeneration of the town centre as an important part of our county.  

“As with all other stages in the grassroots creation of Haverhub, these designs have been put together by the community, for the community. We now invite the public to have further input and add their suggestions and opinions to a survey this month, so we can send an accurate design to the planning department in May,” Gitti adds.

The design concepts and information are now being exhibited in the foyer area of Haverhub, and will be on display until the end of April. Members of the public are invited to drop in, have a look, and share their thoughts with the team via a survey. 

The survey can be found on social media, at the exhibition, or filled out via the QR code below. The Haverhub team thanks all its supporters and the community for helping them get to where they are today, and look forward to the next exciting stages of development.
