CCAT partner, the Port of Milford Haven has identified a historic area of the port called Carriage Drive for restoration and heritage improvements. CCAT in partnership with Pembroke Dock Heritage Center and the Port has created a participatory mapping project so that the local community can co-create a shared vision for Carriage Drive.
This area was the formal entrance used by officers in horse-drawn carriages to access their residences inside the Port walls at Pembroke Dock in the 1800s.
“Interest in the heritage and future potential of Pembroke Dock has never been greater. We want to enhance this space giving the public, our customers and visitors an amenity and experience they’ll tell others about when they visit the Dockyard. We can all play a part in developing what goes into Carriage Drive – no ideas are off-limits!” said Tim James, Head of Commercial Development and Energy at the Port of Milford Haven.
Ports have always evolved to meet the needs of the community and country, and Pembroke Port is no exception. Visit ‘Reviving Carriage Drive’, to explore the area via virtual tours, delve into the past and compare the area through the ages.
Here, visitors can make suggestions for either Environmental, Heritage or Amenities improvements to the area, vote for, and add to existing ideas.
All ideas will be considered and help inform the funding bid for this ambitious project and the Pembroke Dock Heritage Center will act as the focal point for the project.
‘This is a great idea to bring local people together in the constructive planning and improvement of the area. Members of the community are encouraged to take this opportunity and use our dedicated community HUB to submit their suggestions.’ Graham Clarkson – Chairman, Pembroke Dock Heritage Center
The project will run from 12 July – 2 August 2021.
