Demolition plans submitted for Newtown school

Created on 02/12/2021 @ 08:20
A planning application has been made for the demolition of Ysgol Cedewain in Newtown.

Powys County Council has submitted the plans to demolish all of the building on the site in Plantation Lane.

It is part of plans to build a £22m school on the site.

As part of the plans, 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.

Seventy-five per cent of its funding is coming from the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme. The remaining 25% would be funded by the council.

The plans include a multi-use games area, external services yard compound, sports pitch, 45 space car parking area including four electric charging bays, and new vehicular access off Plantation Lane.

Town councillors will make their comments on the plans next week. The planning application is being considered by Powys planners this month.
