Planning application submitted for new recycling centre
23rd January 2018
Plans for a new household waste recycling centre in north Powys have moved closer after Powys County Council submitted a planning application.
The council has submitted a planning application for the new centre on the Dyffryn Industrial Estate in Newtown on land purchased with assistance from the Welsh Government.
The site will be part of the council's plans to secure the long-term future of the county's household waste recycling centres. The recycling centres in Brecon, Llandrindod and Ystradgynlais are owned by the council, with the current sites in Newtown and Welshpool privately owned.
Cllr Phyl Davies, Cabinet Member for Waste and Recycling, said
"This investment is part of our long-term plan to secure strategic recycling and waste facilities across the county. This is to provide the infrastructure for us to meet the Welsh Government's ambitious target to recycle at least 70 per cent of waste by 2025."
The application can be viewed online at www.powys.gov.uk by going to the Planning and building control page.
