Powys County Council is to demolish the youth centre in Plantation Lane, Newtown.

A report will go to county councillors next week confirming its plans after an application was submitted to planners to confirm it could go ahead with the demolition without planning permission.

It plans to build social housing on the site.

The youth centre was closed as part of a review of youth services in the county, with some services moving to other council and educational establishments in the town.

The report states: "The proposed redevelopment of the site for affordable housing would mean ensure the restoration of the site is to an acceptable standard.

"The demolition statement confirms measures to reduce the amenity impact to nearby neighbours during demolition, this includes securing the site, traffic movements and notification of works to the occupiers of the nearest dwellings."
