Solva Business Group representatives met with Stephen Crabb on Saturday 7th March to discuss the A487 at Newgale. The group presented him with a document outlining SBG thoughts on the subject and the likely impact on Solva were a suitable solution not put in place.

This is a summary of the main points addressed:

  • PCC should be as keen as everyone else to try and maintain access from the south of the county via the A487 Newgale road.
  • Stephen Crabb will contact the chief executive of PCC to arrange a personal meeting to discuss the issue, with the aim of providing the public with a proper consultation framework.
  • He proposes that all of the relevant agencies (PCNPA; Natural Resources Wales; Pembrokeshire Tourism etc) be brought together to discuss this issue fully, with the intent of providing full and proper solutions to the problem.
  • He feels, as SBG do, that PCC should have already identified and understood the value of the road to the peninsula and will clarify this with them.
  • He is of the opinion that PCC should be driving this issue forward, providing properly costed solutions and proposals for funding.
  • He considers this a national matter and intends liaising with Paul Davies (AM) who could then present this to the Senedd in Cardiff.

Mr Crabb assured SBG that he would share any information regarding future developments that he became aware of. For further information please visit
