Plans to give The Raven Inn a new lease of life have been backed by Welshpool Town Council.

The inn at Raven Square has been closed since before Christmas but fears for its future have been allayed by owners Glenn and Mark Rowles who are seeking permission to transform the well-established property.

The owners have applied to Powys County Council to carry out improvements which include the provision of a new toilet block, a completely new downstairs gastro-pub style layout, a new kitchen and the provision of six en-suite bedrooms.

In their application the Rowles brothers say: “The principle objective of this application is to ensure the long term future of The Raven Inn as a vibrant and viable town pub. In addition to the community and social benefits this will also have the economic advantage of providng employment and attracting visitors to the town.”

The Raven was at one time run by the Rowles family but has had a succession of tenants in recent years.

The plans were backed by Welshpool Town Council’s planning committee and will now go to Powys County Council.
