How Haven's Hafan y Mor plans to expand North Wales's biggest holiday park

Post by Keith » 2 weeks ago

The region’s biggest holiday park is planning to increase pitch numbers and develop a new beachside cafe.

Haven is splashing the cash again at Hafan Y Mor near Pwllheli to meet demand to stay on the site which has 1,100 caravan and touring pitches and 215 chalets.

They are already spending £12.5m on developments this winter - including the development of a new activities adventure park and construction of a new high quality restaurant.

Now they have revealed they also hope to create around 225 new pitches within the 180 hectare site - while also demolishing 56 existing chalets.

Under the proposals there is also a plan to erect a new beach cafe, play area and car park around the site of the existing sewage plant, with a new plant built on another part of the site.

Arwel Evans, senior planner at Lichfields, said the combined developments would bring an increase in jobs at the popular site.

They added that even with the increase the population at peak would still be well below when it operated as a Butlins, when it had an estimated 18,000 visitors at its busiest times.

Lichfields, on behalf of Bourne Leisure, have requested that the Council provides a formal screening opinion to confirm the requirement for an Environmental Impact Assessment before submitting plans.
Breakdown of the proposals:
Outline Projects:

Parcel A – Old Stables

Convert the old stables into an area that will accommodate up to 13 static caravan pitches utilising parts of the existing stone walls.

Parcel B – Lakeside West

It is proposed to site up to 27 static caravan pitches in this area with the potential for a limited number (up to 3) to be situated on the lake as ‘lakehouses’.

Parcel C – Secondary Sales Area

It is proposed to site up to 8 static caravan pitches in this area.


Parcel D – Old Chalet Site

It is proposed to demolish four apartment blocks (56 apartments / 272 guest spaces) and to create an area of parking with associated landscaping.

Parcel E – Boating Lake Site

The site currently comprises an area of car parking. It is proposed to develop up to 24 new static caravan pitches with associated internal access road, car parking and landscaping.

Parcel F – Beachside Site

Within this parcel it is proposed to develop up to 15 new static caravan pitches with associated internal access road and landscaping.

Parcel G – East of Existing Sewage Treatment Plant

The site comprises two fields, separated by established planting. Within this area it is proposed to site up to 90 static caravan bases with associated access and landscaping.

Parcel H – Site of Existing Sewage Treatment Plant (STP)

Full planning permission was granted in September 2017 for the demolition of the STP and the construction of a new plant to the north west of the site. Within this area it is proposed to erect a new beach café with terrace, a play area and a car park.

Parcel I – Site North of Existing STP

It is proposed to develop 47 new static pitches in this parcel with associated internal access roads, car parking spaces for each pitch, soft landscaping and associated infrastructure.

Parcel J – Coastal Defences

The coastal defence parcel comprises a short stretch of coastline extending from the northern end of ‘Cardigan Bay View’ to the site of the new STP to the east.

The proposed development comprises works to a 320m stretch of the coastline including ‘fish-tail’ shaped rock-armour breakwaters and intervening areas of sand/gravel beach recharge.

The site already employs 390 workers and attracts more than 200,000 visitors to North Wales every year.
