Welshpool’s long-awaited central bus station is back on the agenda with the Town Council proposing a Berriew Street Car Park location.

The Town Council this week considered five options and voted to support a planning committee recommendation to create a new central bus point in the car park.

The council has been discussing the issue for several years but had been asked by Powys County Council to come forward with a proposal.

Councillor Phil Pritchard said he had met with Powys County Council officers and had not identified any problems with the site alongside the Berriew Street Car Park toilet block.

He said the location was ideal for visitors to the town centre, was in walking distance of all the main streets and would replace dangerous stopping locations in Berriew Road.

The council will also ask Powys for a permanent bus stop to be provided on Broad Street for the town bus.
