A decision is due today on whether Tenby's St Catherine Island's Fort can be turned into a visitor attraction.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is meeting to discuss the plan.
The victorian fort was home to a zoo for ten years which closed in 1978. It is a scheduled ancient monument and a Grade II* listed building.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority will today consider a plan to turn Tenby's St Catherine's Island into a tourist attraction.
An application was turned down in 2013 but a revised plan has been submitted.
A Victorian fort on an island off Tenby looks set to be reopened as a tourist attraction after being closed for decades.
A previous application to reopen St Catherine's was turned down by National Park planners.
But a revised scheme has been recommended for approval tomorrow because of the "economic benefit" a new attraction would bring to the area.
A Welsh coastal town is swooping down on seagulls.
Tenby has launched a trial of seagull proof rubbish bags to reduce street litter which it hopes will deter gulls and other animals from attacking kerbside waste.
The two month trial is a joint initiative between Pembrokeshire County Council and Tenby Town Council.
Householders in selected streets have been written to about the scheme and offered gull proof bags free of charge for the duration of the pilot.
If the trial proves successful then the bags, which are re-useable, will be made available for sale to residents who want them on a permanent basis.
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service says it has received a "significant" number of calls in relation to flooding incidents in the Amman Valley.
The fire service told ITV News it is also dealing with flooding incidents in Tenby, an "isolated" flood in Fishguard and another in Pontlliw.
Hundreds of festive bathers have splashed out in the sunshine to make the 43rd Tenby Boxing Day Swim a big success.
The Pantomime fancy dress inspired Snow White, Ugly Sisters, fairies both good and wicked, Puss in Boots (and without boots) and even a panto zebra to take the plunge in the 10 degree sea.
More than 550 swimmers were presented with their commemorative medal around a warming beach bonfire.
It's hoped the event will raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Chris Osborne, Chairman of the Tenby Sea Swimming Association said:
“It’s been another great swim, with glorious weather creating ideal conditions. We’ve seen some highly entertaining costumes and it’s been a brilliant morning for everyone - including, we hope, all the charities who will benefit.”
Old master John Beck sold thousands of his artworks over the years but his paintings have never been shown off as a collection. But with his 100th birthday looming, John's family decided to put on a one-man show in Tenby.
Great-grandad John still paints every day and says it helps to keep him young. The father-of-four was never a full-time artist and earned his living as a hotelier and an antique dealer. In his younger days he was a friend of the hell-raising Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and the artist Augustus John.
Widower John sold his early work to admirers for a few pounds - but some of his canvasses are on sale for £400 at his first exhibition which opens on Saturday and was organised by his daughter Prue who he lives with in the village of Cosheston, near Pembroke.
Pruse said, ""He has turned his hand to many things over the years, sport, antiques, property, betting on horses - but, by his own admission, has not decided what he wants to do yet!"
The retrospective exhibition will be held at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery from November 30 until December 21.
