Plans for 32 new council flats revealed

Created on 26/07/2021 @ 09:52
Plans for 32 energy efficient council homes have been revealed for Newtown.

Powys County Council plans to build the one-bedroom flats for council rent on the site of the former Robert Owen House.

Residents can have their say on the plans as part of a pre-planning application consultation.

The consultation has now started for the proposed development, which will run for 28 days to allow interested parties to comment on the plans before a planning application is submitted.
If planning permission is granted, the new homes will be owned and managed by the council and allocated to applicants on the Powys Common Housing Register.
This project is part of the council’s Transformation Programme to deliver aspirations in Vision 2025.
Cllr Iain McIntosh, Cabinet Member for Cabinet Member for Housing, Planning and Economic Regeneration, said: “We want to build affordable homes and 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.
“Our proposed development on the site that the Robert Owen House occupied is going to be important as we continue to work towards achieving this ambitious target.
“The pre-application consultation is important as it gives the local community an opportunity to have their say on the plans before we submit a planning application.”
The pre-application consultation will close on August 20, 2021. To view the pre-application consultation documents online visit which also gives details on how you can make representations on the proposed plans.
