Following the controversial decision to allow planning for 17 flats on the former Social Club site to go ahead, Welshpool Town Council said it is happy to mediate discussions between developers and concerned local residents.

The Town Clerk has already met with the people behind the plan to convert the former entertainment centre into a block of flats behind the library.

But the scheme faced widespread opposition, including from the Town Council, and despite these concerns, Powys County Council gave it the green light.

“The developers would like to do all it can, within reason, to meet the concerns of the residents,” said Robert Robinson, Town Clerk.

“To this end the Town Council will host a drop-in day where residents can meet the developers and discuss their concerns so that perhaps a compromise can be reached.

“The main issues include the access to car parking at the upper level, the road access to the lower part of the site, access for contractors, overlooking and some design matters.

“It is hoped that through discussion that both the developers and residents came come to an agreed compromise to create a good development.”

The drop-in day will take place on Friday, May 11 from 11am-7pm at the Corn Exchange in the Town Hall.
