Updated plans for Cleddau Bridge Hotel site development

A PLANNING app for a major development on the site of a former hotel in Pembrokeshire has been updated.

Pembrokeshire County Council published a public notice in the Western Telegraph on November 9 advising that an application for planning permission had been lodged to demolish the former Cleddau Bridge Hotel in Pembroke Dock and to construct a care home and a connected bungalow.

The request was made by Hawkfire Developments Limited who had previously applied for the same development, but with two linked bungalows rather than one.

Full planning permission had been granted in May 2018 to change the use of the hotel to a 48-bedroom care home, but less than a year later the building on Essex Road was left in a state semi-abandoned after a fire.

The building suffered severe structural damage and some sections collapsed completely, leading to a new request for demolition and new construction.

It is hoped that if approved, the development will include the demolition of the current building, the construction of the residential house, including its living rooms, dining room, staff offices, commercial kitchen and storage facilities, as well as an attached bungalow.


Anyone wishing to view the application can do so through the planning portal on and search for reference 22/0510/PA.

Anyone wishing to make a development statement must do so in writing by November 23.

Representations should be made online at the above application or by writing to the Director of Community Services, County Hall, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA61 1TP.

If written, the reference (22/0510/PA) must be included.
