Funding worth nearly £120,000 has been awarded to Powys County Council to develop small-scale flood alleviation schemes in the county. 

The council has been successful in securing the funding for 10 schemes from the Welsh Government’s Environment and Rural Affairs Department under a £1m capital initiative to improve flood prevention schemes over a four-year period. 

And the villages of Forden, Castle Caereinion and Sarnau will all get a share of the work.

Cabinet Member for Highways, Councillor Liam Fitzpatrick said: “The council’s land drainage team has been successful in securing £104,000 additional funding from Welsh Government to progress a number of small-scale projects this financial year with a further £15,000 being contributed by the county council.

The three local projects, which include Springfields in Forden and Watery Lane, Castle Caereinion will begin their work soon.
