Land for Regeneration at Wales’ Newest Marina – Burry Port Harbour


A harbour side site at Burry Port Harbour in Carmarthenshire has been brought to the market by Colliers International.

The 2.8 acre site has planning consent for a leisure and retail led mixed-use development that will provide opportunities for shops, restaurants, a pub and hotel and new residential accommodation.

Carmarthenshire council leader, Emlyn Dole, said the development would “create an exciting new waterfront area for the town.”  He added:

“The project has an emphasis on design quality and sustainability which will set a standard for other future developments to meet.”

The Burry Port Harbour site is one of three in Carmarthenshire set to be transformed through Llanelli Coast Joint Venture, a partnership between the Welsh Government and Carmarthenshire council.

Nick More, associate director at the Bristol office of Colliers International, which covers the South West and South Wales, said:

“Times have changed since Burry Port Harbour was a coal port for the local mining industry.

“It is now the newest marina in Wales with a 250 berth facility, and its location in the heart of the award-winning Millennium Coastal Park provides an ideal base for exploring the south and west Wales coastline.

“The combination of its picturesque setting, and its history as the place where the American aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart landed as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic make Burry Port Harbour a unique tourist attraction, and we are anticipating interest from a variety of potential purchasers.”
