Former council building demolished for housing

Created on 06/05/2021 @ 07:33
New council homes are to replace the site of a former council residential home.

Robert Owen House in Newtown has been demolished. The Powys County Council owned property had more recently been offices and supported accommodation.

But plans have been put forward for affordable council housing on the site.

The existing property has now been demolished in readiness for the project.
Nina Davies, Head of Housing and Community Development, said: “We have an ambitious target of building 250 new homes by 2025, a key priority in our Vision 2025 Corporate Improvement Plan, and we’re making real progress.
“The site that the Robert Owen House occupied is going to be important as we continue to work towards achieving this ambitious target.
“We want to build affordable homes and are currently developing plans.
“The demolition work is just the first stage in preparing the site for this exciting project.
“Before a planning application is submitted, we will hold a pre-application consultation to give the local community an opportunity to have their say on the plans.”
