Tenby, Pembrokeshire

CarneySweeney is delighted to annouce it has secured planning approval for the mixed-use redevelopment of the old Royal Mail depot site for 34 apartments, and commercial space at Warren Street, Tenby.

The prominent, old depot site has lain vacant for many years. It is sensitively located, between St John's Church and Deep Park Baptist Church and lies opposite the historic Town Walls.

The project team, including Roberts Limbrick Architects, worked closely with the Conservation Department to deliver a 5-storey design characteristic of Tenby, which responds to the nearby heritage assets and wider conservation area.

The redevelopment scheme will deliver much needed homes on site and will be a proud addition to Tenby town centre.

Rob Mitchell, Director, CarneySweeney said: “This is great news. The site's location is in many respects ideal for a housing led, mixed use scheme. Nevertheless, complex negotiations were needed to unlock this site given its sensitivities. We're very pleased – like Tenby itself, it will be a great place to live and visit.”

Annabelle Stannard, Development and Disposals Manager, Telereal Trillium, said: “We are really pleased with the planning decision to improve the former Royal Mail delivery depot site. Due to its positioning within the town, the sympathetic and appropriate design-led scheme will hugely benefit the area.”
