St Davids Park Red Wharf Bay

by I Goodwin

Hi Wil

I have been a visitor to your fantastic island for the past two years and have a seasonal caravan pitch at St Davids Park Red Wharf Bay.

There is now talk that the park may not take seasonal caravans next year due to some planning permission.

Can you shed any light on this matter? We cannot get any answers from the park itself because they do not know!!

The season is drawing to an end and all the seasonal caravans would like to return next year, but feel as though we are in limbo.

My caravan has to be sited next year which means registering with another site elsewhere. Finding one is very difficult due to waiting lists.

So you can understand my urgency to get some information on this matter.

Kind Regards

I Goodwin

Dear I Goodwin,

Thank you for getting in touch and I can understand your concerns and sympathise as this is a lovely and very popular part of Anglesey for visitors from the North West.

I have had a quick look at the Anglesey County Council Planning Department webpage and can find nothing in the Appeals section indicating that St David's is appealing any decision by the County Council. Check the link below.

I cannot envisage the County Council doing anything that would impact negatively on the Island tourist industry. Therefore, it may be that St David's Park at Red Wharf Bay has a Planning Application to change the nature of the site.

This may
have implications for the lay out of the site and its future usage by regular seasonal visitors.

I have noted from the local papers that St David's is developing the site with a new restaurant. It may be that they are figuring on varying the type of visitor they welcome.

My feeling is that if the owners of St David's Park aren't tellng you then I would be concerned because they must know what's going on. They are demonstrating very poor manners toward people who have been their lifeblood over the years.

Respectfully, I would recommend that you call the Plannng Department of the Anglesey County Council directly and ask them. I have found that the officers are very professional.

All planning applications are public documents, which means you can ask for information about them.

Further, ask if there are any new or proposed guidance or TANs (Technical Advice Notes) that may impact on the site. Can't imagine any.

Unless there is an ongoing dispute. But there again that would be appealed or subject to a new application.

First, have a look at the webpage I direct you to on the link below to shape your questions. You'll find the telephone number there.

The cost of a phonecall from Manchester to Llangefni is worth it to settle your mind or set you to making necessary deicisons.

I hope this is of use to you.

Please do let me know what you learn.

My very best wishes to you,


Anglesey Planning Department

Having visited this summer I would not reccommend this park to anyone who wants to enjoy a holiday without hassle. The management dont know how to smile or be friendly and should go on a customer service course. There are much more customer friendly sites nearby

Planning Permission
by: Anonymous

Hi All

I actually emailed the Planning Department of Anglesey County Council and expressed my concern at the amount of time it was taking to reach a decision about granting permissions for tourers in 2012.

I was told that it was too late and it had gone to appeal. I have been calling the park on a regular basis to find out if we could book for the Summer and was told that the council had until the first week of May to make their decision.

Hopefully, by the time anyone reads this, the council will have got their finger out!

we will stay on the park next year depending on the outcome, the hearing is I believe on the 20th December and the outcome will take 4 days. Do not think I will attempt to find out the result until after new year. May spoil the Christmas period !!!

St Davids Park Planning Application
by: Mark

Hi I Goodwin,

Very interesting to see you request below as we too have been on the park for th past couple of years. Not sure when your request was made but did you find anything out from contacting the coucil.

I did hear from the staff that there was a planning application meeting the week of the 19th of December 2011.

I guess we are all in limbo until after the meeting...

Many thanks
