We’ve been waiting with bated breath, but we’ll have to wait a little longer.

Powys County Council has been given another six months to finalise a plan that will steer all developments in the Welshpool area through to 2026.

The Land Development Plan (LDP) has been given the once over by an Inspector appointed by Welsh Government, and the feedback is that more work is needed to decide the scale and location of new development.

It has been agreed that the basis of the Plan is such that only areas of further work relating to housing viability, delivery of housing numbers and gypsy and traveller accommodation is required.

Cllr Avril York, Cabinet Member for Planning Policy, said: “The response from the Inspector suggests that the further activity will strengthen our LDP for the future.

“We welcome the inspector’s view that a great deal of good work in developing our local development plan has taken place and she has clearly recognised the volume of work that has been put into it by the council.

“The local development plan will be the most important planning document we have and we are determined to ensure we have a robust framework in place.  It is a policy for the long term and it important that we get it right for the future.”
