Several villages close to Welshpool are set to grow considerably over the coming decade, with proposals currently going through the planning system covering up to 250 new houses.

As the area faces a housing shortage, developers are hoping to cash in with industry experts predicting that a majority of the projects will go ahead despite local opposition.

We can reveal that Powys planners are currently considering projects in Arddleen, Forden, Castle Caereinion, Llandrinio, Four Crosses, Llanfair Caereinion and Churchstoke.

It follows hot on the heels of our story over Christmas confirming that a 40-house development looks set to go ahead close to The Flash (pictured).

However, planners are not having everything their own way with a recent bid to push through a proposal in Four Crosses being turned down. A 17-flat proposal in Welshpool on the site of the old Social Club is also facing stiff opposition.

But developers will be heartened by a recent Powys decision to overrule objections to an eight-home development in Guilsfield, saying the need for new housing outweighed the local council’s concerns.

The fill list of the biggest planning proposals can be seen here.
