Planning permission has now been passed to build a new RNLI lifeboat station on the marina site. The building will house Pwllheli’s new Shannon Class fast 25 knot all weather lifeboat. When called upon, this will be launched by tractor into the sea off Abererch beach. Work on clearing the path through the sand dunes will start in the next few weeks with construction proper beginning late spring 2019.
The plans for the new station include a crew changing area, station office, crew trainings rooms as well as a dedicated area for visitor engagement.
