Bluestone's plans for a £7m SkyDome development has been unanimously approved by Pembrokeshire County Council.

The planning committee met this morning (Tuesday) and gave the project the green light.

Bluestone’s Head of Projects Liz Weedon said: "We are delighted to secure approval for our groundbreaking SkyDome project. We know that as well as being a hugely positive asset to the resort, vastly improving our guests’ experience, the SkyDome development will inject millions of pounds into the local economy.”

Ms Weedon said groundworks could now begin within weeks.

“We’re keen to get started on this exciting £7million project, which is expected to take around 15 months to complete,” she added.

It is anticipated that SkyDome will open to resort guests in spring 2019.

A UK first, it will see a transparent canopy arched over a massive 7000 sqm area encompassing cafes, shops, activities and a 600-seat amphitheatre.

Initially it will create 55 new jobs at the resort and will see around £3m spent within the local construction industry.
