Pendine investing in tourist infrastructure

Carmarthenshire Council has been able to secure EU grants to encourage tourism, part of which is being used for serviced motorhome infrastructure.  

The town is best noted for the early days of motor racing at the beginning of the twentieth century and there is a Museum of Speed there today which will house the 110 year old vehicle that broke the speed record then.. 

The entire project will cost £7m, and is part of the Welsh Government’s EU-funded Tourism Attractor Destination programme, led by Visit Wales, which aims to create 13 must-see destinations throughout Wales.

Carmarthenshire County Council has been working on a regeneration plan for Pendine since 2010. It is hoped that the completed scheme will deliver an extra GBP3.3m boost to the local economy - and of course motorhomers will be bringing in some of that cash once the serviced area is completed.
