The project aims to maximise the economic value of heritage and make the Welsh historic environment more intellectually accessible, more enjoyable to visit for both tourists and local residents and create a lasting sense of what makes Wales special. Although much of recent history in Pembrokeshire has centred around the Haven, this has not been exclusively so, and the project has therefore considered the County as a whole. Implementation should ensure that this balance is maintained.
