Powys County Council's independent/Conservative led coalition Cabinet has launched a document setting out its "vision" for the future.

Council Leader, Cllr Rosemarie Harris, has launched the document titled "Vision 2025" which sets out its mission of "Change for Powys - delivering an open, pro-active and engaging council for 2025."

The launch comes after criticism of the council over recent two years at stringent cuts in services due to budget cuts from the Welsh Government. This has included a u-turn on recycling time openings and a review into other decisions made by the council before May's local elections.

Four priority areas have been set out in the document. They are:

Economy - developing a vibrant economy

Health and care - leading the way in effective, integrated rural health and care

Learning and skills - strengthening learning and skills

Residents and communities - supporting our residents and communities

Cllr Harris said: "My Cabinet is a team of considerable experience in public office who bring fresh challenge and new thinking. Our first task as a Cabinet is to map out a stable course for the future, to work with our residents and communities to create this vision to take us to 2025.

"There is a great deal to be done, but Vision 2025 sets out our initial thoughts, our views on what the priorities should be, but they are a starting point and a discussion document that is open to challenge and debate."

Cllr Harris added: "Powys is a wonderful county with a great deal to offer for residents, both young and not so young and those who visit us whether to work on a daily basis or as tourists. Our challenge is to improve what the county has to offer and make it an even more attractive place to work, play and do business."
