Housing planning application to be considered
23 July 2021
A planning application to build 17 new council houses in south Powys will be considered next week, the county council has said.
Powys County Council's Housing Service has submitted the plans, which could see the houses being built on the site of the former primary school in Bronllys.
The planning application for the development will be considered by the council's Planning, Taxi Licensing & Rights of Way Committee on Thursday, July 29.
The development will see a mix of much-needed one, two, three and four-bedroomed unit, which will be available for council rent. Two adapted bungalows will also be built as part of the development to meet local needs.
A green community space will also be provided as part of the development.
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 of the former school in Bronllys is going to be important as we continue to work towards achieving this ambitious target."
