Complaints over ‘boy racers’ causing anti-social behaviour across car parks in Tenby have been passed onto local authorities by town councillors.

Commenting at the most recent meeting of Tenby Town Council, the clerk Andrew Davies told told members that he had informed the police and Pembrokeshire County Council’s streetcare and parking manager Marc Owen on issues relating to boy racers in the multi-storey situated on Upper Park Road.

“This will be monitored and car registrations will be taken. The police may also use powers available to them to seize the vehicles of persistent offenders,” remarked Mr. Davies.

A planning application for CCTV cameras to be installed at the Seafront car park on Southcliffe Street was also welcomed by councillors.

In comments to be passed onto the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority on the proposals, members of Tenby Civic Society highlighted recent incidents of ‘boy racers’ speeding round the site during the Easter holiday and endangering pedestrian users including families.

Clr. Jim Cornwell said he was in favour of this application believing this to be essential in preventing crime and disorder He proceeded to show the positioning and direction of the proposed cameras some of which would also cover the town’s skate park.

Clr. Trevor Hallett commented that he also believed this to be essential for safety and security and proposed approval.
