Plans to erect a new visitor attraction at a local theme and sports park near Tenby look set to be given the thumbs up.

The application for a ‘Dragon Slide’ attraction, submitted by Mr. Davies, of Heatherton World of Activites in St Florence, Tenby, is set to be discussed by Pembrokeshire County Council’s planning committee at a meeting on Tuesday.

A report from PCC’s director of development set to go before the committee, states that full planning permission is sought for the erection of the new visitor attraction known as the Dragon Slide, which comprises of two slides, a beginners’ slide and a more advanced slide.

Participants would ride the slides on tubby tubes (rubber rings) and the conveyor system would return them and the rubber rings back to the start.

In recommending approval for the plans, the report states that the development would improve the range of outdoor experiences at the existing visitor attraction, and would have positive economic and social impacts during the construction phase, also creating additional employment opportunities afterwards.

The siting and design of the development would be well related to the other activities at Heatherton and as such would not be visually intrusive in the landscape.

The council landscape officer has confirmed that the development would not affect the nearby protected trees and woodland to the north, south and east of the site and considers there would not be any adverse visual impact from the development.
