The records listed as departmental records below were transferred to Powys Archives mainly prior to 1996.  In 1996 Powys County Council set up a Modern Records facility (now Information Management) to house its own records, and the vast majority of Council records are currently stored there.  To access the Powys County Council records which are stored in Information Management, you will need to contact the relevant department as it exists  today.

The records listed below are recorded by department as they existed at the time and only represent a tiny fraction of the records that exist for Powys County Council.
