‘The Lab Haverfordwest’ is an initiative of Confluence, a creative collaboration between PLANED, spacetocreate, iDeA Architects, Pembrokeshire County Council and Transition Haverfordwest, which aims to devise and test new and imaginative ways of working in Haverfordwest that will bring the community together to inspire and shape the process of urban planning, design and regeneration.

With support from the Arts Council of Wales and Pembrokeshire County Council, Confluence will orchestrate a series of experimental and creative projects, bringing stakeholders together in new ways, inspired by exemplary practice in the arts and urban design, planning and regeneration, with the aim of re-imagining the town and:

  • developing innovative models of working together
  • creatively engaging the community with regeneration opportunities associated with the river
  • helping people think differently about Haverfordwest
  • driving change in the individual and collective practices of the partners involved.
