A "condemned" footbridge linking the two main shopping areas of Haverfordwest town centre is set to be replaced.

A planning application to replace the Riverside Shopping Centre pedestrian bridge has been submitted to Pembrokeshire County Council by Beaver Bridges Ltd.

A supporting document states that the replacement is required as the existing bridge has been "condemned and  has now been taken out of service."

It adds that it remains open in the short term but has "very little life left in it."

The footbridge, crossing from the Clock Tower to the former Ocky White building, is between two road bridges which are Grade II listed stone structures.

The replacement bridge over the Cleddau will be built with steel, which will be painted, and be similar to the current structure.

The old bridge will be taken out in one piece with little impact on the river and its wildlife, or the surrounding fauna and flora, a report adds.
