Solva Community Council

Harbour path land slides
Bruce Payne, SCC clerk, convened a site meeting of interested parties to discuss the landslips that occurred over the winter and spring and temporarily blocked the path between the Lower Solva car park and the Sand Quay. The path is on National Trust land but is managed by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Parks, who manage most of the Pembrokeshire footpaths. The PCC engineer informed us that the cause of the landslips was water discharging down the slope. The water came from a drain that runs under the main road at the point where the quay road joins the A487. A drain diversion has taken place and it now discharges over the masonry section of the slope. The path will be tidied up by PCNP later in the year. Pembrokeshire County Council will address the subsidence in the quay road in the winter, it will mean closure of the road for a short period but plenty of notice will be given.
Tree Thinning Around the Memorial Cross
The proposal to thin trees to allow a view of the sea from the Memorial Cross has attracted many considered views from Solva citizens. The consensus is to support the proposal but all correspondents have made the point that is important to maintain the rookery. It must be stressed that no wholesale felling of trees has been suggested, only
careful thinning and management. The next step is to produce a detailed plan which will be shared with everyone before a formal application is made to PCNP. It has been encouraging to see so many people giving the matter some thought and expressing their views to the SCC.
Wheelchair and buggy path
The committee, comprising representatives of Solva Care and the SCC, met to walk the possible routes that would allow easy access from the top of the village to Lower Solva, away from the busy road. The proposal to create a mobility and exercise route for all ages has gained a great deal of support within the community and fits with the Hywel Dda Health Board’s stated well-being objectives. A number of routes are being looked at – each posing its own particular challenges.
Barry Cook, the PCC states officer was informed of the project when he attended the SCC meeting on
11 July. When the committee has whittled down the possible routes the proposals will be shared for
you to comment.
