Appeal: Historic fort visitor attraction approved subject to conditions

St Catherine's Island

Permission has been approved for the change of use of the grade II listed fort at St Catherine’s Island in Tenby, Wales, into a visitor attraction, despite the appellant disputing a number of imposed conditions.

The change of use and construction of various associated works was approved in July 2015. The appeal site had previously been subject to another appeal decision in 2014, when an inspector rejected the proposal to use the island as a visitor attraction owing to concerns about the impact on protected species, although in all other respects the inspector found the proposed use to be acceptable.
