Residents in the Welshpool area are invited to put forward their views on a draft plan which aims to improve the well-being of individuals, communities and the county as a whole by 2040. 

The plan, which has to be published this Spring under legislation called the Well-being of Future Generations Act, sets out 15 key well-being steps which aim to deliver for Powys residents on things like better broadband, improving mental health services and travelling around Powys.

Cllr Rosemarie Harris, Chair of the Powys Public Service Board, who have produced the plan said: “This plan sets out the Powys we want to see by 2040 and has 15 well-being steps listed within it which have been chosen as the key priorities for the next three years. The steps were chosen after lots of research and consultation with residents who ranked the topics they felt were key to improve their well-being and that of their community.

“From offering young people more apprenticeships to protecting our environment and looking at options for green energy and adventure tourism to boost our economy, we’re keen to ask one more time if we’ve got the right things listed before we move into action.”

Views can be given via up to February 11.
