Housing needs drop-in event rearranged
|17th October 2018|
A drop-in event to allow residents living in Llanidloes to share their ideas for new affordable homes in their community has been rearranged.
Powys County Council's Affordable Housing Team has rearranged the drop-in event, which will be held at the town's market day on Saturday, October 27 between 9am-3pm.
The original drop-in event has to be cancelled after Storm Callum hit the county.
The events have been arranged so that officers can get the views of residents on affordable housing and also establish the housing needs for the area.
The council is looking to develop affordable housing on the former livestock market in the town.
Cllr James Evans, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "We want to produce good quality, sustainable and affordable homes that meet the needs of local communities across Powys and we have made a commitment to developing 250 additional homes over the next five years
"Our Affordable Housing Team will be working in communities throughout Powys to identify suitable land for housing and establishing housing needs. Their work has identified the former livestock market and we intend to build affordable housing on this site.
"These drop-in events are important as they allow us to gather the ideas from residents while we find out what the housing needs are for this area."
