Nearly 300 adult residents have made their opinions known and their comments will be taken into consideration for planning Welshpool’s future for the next 15 years.
Almost 350 high school children have had their input too, as town planners now draft a collective recommendation for Powys County Council for their Land Development Plan (LDP).
“It was an important exercise for the people of Welshpool to make their opinions known now because it is too late when decisions are made over the next 15 years,” said Town Clerk Robert Robinson.
“We, as a Council, have visited owners and identified the land opportunities and have now consulted. The draft plan which will form the Welshpool Town Council submission will be put on display in the Market Village later in April.
“The Town Council planning committee will consider the results of the consultation, land owners meetings and other matters before forming a view on a draft submission on April 13 in the Assembly Room of the Town Hall at 6pm.”
It is believed that Powys County Council is intending to allow for up to 1,000 new homes to be built in Welshpool during the 15-year period and the comments taken now will all be fed into the debate as to where and how many.
