Created on 26/07/2021 @ 09:41
The first visuals of a new £22m school planned in Newtown have been published.

The detailed plans for the new Ysgol Cedewain have been published as part of a pre-application planning consultation.

Powys County Council is urging residents in Newtown and Ysgol Cedewain’s school community to view the detailed site plans and have their say.
As part of the proposed development, the new Ysgol Cedewain school will have purpose-built and state-of-the-art facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, sensory and physiotherapy rooms and garden as well as a community café.
The new school will be funded the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme, who will fund 75% of the project. The remaining 25% would be funded by the council.
The plans for Ysgol Cedewain are part of the council’s Transformation Programme to deliver aspirations in Vision 2025 as well as deliver the Strategy for Transforming Education in Powys 2020-2030.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Education and Property, said: “Our ambitious plans for Ysgol Cedewain will see us provide a world-class facility for our most vulnerable learners.
“When complete, it will provide an environment where teaching staff can thrive and give vulnerable learners facilities that meets their needs, they benefit from and enables them to enjoy learning.
“However, the pre-application consultation is important as it gives the residents of Newtown and Ysgol Cedewain’s school community an opportunity to have their say on these plans before we submit a planning application.”
The pre-application consultation, which is being carried out by contractors and agents Wynne Construction, will start on Monday, July 26 and will close on Friday, August 20.
