Milford Marina will be 'transformed' by The Port of Milford Haven development

The

Port of Milford Haven is planning a development costing in excess of £60million

to create a new waterfront destination in Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire. 

As

part of this, Milford Marina is set to undergo a massive transformation with a

new marina village, more berthing locations and additional facilities for berth

holders.

The

latest development follows the marina’s recent improvement works, which include

replacement decking; the installation, re-wiring and connection of new bollards;

new, automatic LED lighting; new safety ladders and SOS points.


In readiness

for the start of this year’s boating season, the team have been busy installing

free Wi-Fi, planning a programme of events for berth holders and partnering

with other marinas to offer discounts for those who want to travel around

different locations.

Kevin

Hobbs, Short Sea Director for the Port of Milford Haven, said: ‘We’re extremely

excited about our plans for the future. Berth holders will benefit

from additional on-shore attractions, first rate facilities and a further

choice of berthing locations.

‘We

also expect to attract additional visitors to this stunning part of West

Wales.’

Milford Marina was recently assessed under The Yacht Harbour Association’s (TYHA) prestigious Gold Anchor Scheme and awarded 4 Gold Anchors – out of a possible five.

One of the marina’s key assets is its stunning location with the UK’s only coastal National Park. The waterway goes out through ‘The Heads’ to the scenic and stunning Pembrokeshire coast line.

The islands of Skomer and Skokholm lie just off the headland, both of which are internationally important sea bird colonies, such as puffins.
 
TYHA assessor, Gareth Turnbull said: ‘There are some great services on offer at Milford Haven Marina, particularly the positive customer service that the marina team provide. It was a pleasure to assess them and they deserve their 4 Gold Anchors.’
