Council says ‘No’ again to retail unit plan

Welshpool Town Council will not be supporting a new bid from the retail park developers to split one current unit into three smaller units for shops.

At last night’s full meeting, the council said it would not be reversing an earlier decision to stop the unit, at the back of B&M, being split into three as it would pose an economic threat to town centre trade.

At the beginning of summer, Welshpool Town Council refused to support an application to split the unit as it also included a café, citing the threat such a development could pose to town centre businesses. The application was later refused by Powys County Council.

However, the developers resubmitted a plan, this time without the café, but again it won’t be supported.

“The council stands by its stance as before,” said Town Clerk, Robert Robinson.

The plan, with the town council’s recommendation, will now be considered by Powys County Council planners who have the final say.
