CK Planning recently obtained full planning permission from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park for Mr David Ward to operate a commercial car repair garage in St Davids.  Since 2003 the garage had been operating under a number of temporary consents and following professional advice and support from Chris Kimpton of CK Planning a full planning application was prepared and lodged with the National Park.

Without full planning permission Mr Ward was unable to grow and develop his business as the temporary consents hindered his ability to obtain the necessary capital investment for staff training in the use of ‘hi-tec’ car systems, the repair and maintenance of electric/hybrid cars, the acquisition of specialist tools and diagnostic equipment and the establishment of an MOT station.

Mr Ward comments that ‘without CK Planning’s expert planning experience, knowledge and guidance my business would have been unable to grow – as it is I already employ two local people and can now plan to offer another full time mechanics job to someone else living locally’.
