Pembrokeshire Local Action Network for Enterprise and Development

PLANED is a community led partnership, a charity, and a company limited by guarantee, with its Board members consisting of community representatives and representatives from the public sector.

PLANED plays a vital role in empowering and enabling local communities to be full and equal partners in the development of their area through EU programmes, Welsh Government initiatives, and other funding streams e.g. the Big Lottery or the Heritage Lottery Fund.

PLANED’s process of engagement ensures a very wide-ranging involvement in the development of strategies and projects, with local people, area enterprise groups, and specialist partners feeding into the process.

PLANED works to implement a number of interrelated strategies which taken together promote sustainable living by: –

  • Supporting local community activities to improve their quality of life
  • Promoting a Sense of Place/Valuing the Environment
  • Developing a community culture of entrepreneurship
  • Encouraging local enterprise
  • Developing sustainable tourism
  • Supporting sustainable agriculture

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a special place and needs careful management to look after it for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future. The Park Authority is charged with keeping the Park special.

The Park is a unique environment made up of many things – wildlife, habitats, farming, history, tourism, business and local communities. Their job as an Authority is to work to achieve a happy balance for all those with an interest in the Park.

It’s worth remembering that National Parks are not in public ownership. Most of the land is privately owned. In fact in Pembrokeshire, without the foreshore lease, they own just 5.37 sq km of land – just under 1% of the area of the National Park.


National Trust

A charity founded in 1895 by three people who saw the importance of our nation’s heritage and open spaces and wanted to preserve them for everyone to enjoy. More than 120 years later, these values are still at the heart of everything they do. They look after special places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for ever, for everyone.

As a charity they rely on membership fees, donations and legacies, and revenue raised from commercial operations, for income.

They have over 4.5 million members and 62,000 volunteers. More than 20 million people visit pay for entry properties, while an estimated 100 million visit their open air properties.
They protect and open to the public over 350 historic houses, gardens and ancient monuments; as well as looking after forests, woods, fens, beaches, farmland, downs, moorland, islands, archaeological remains, castles, nature reserves, villages – for ever, for everyone.
