Plans for Abermule Business Park out for consultation
23 September 2020
Plans to develop units at Abermule Business Park will be available for consultation from Monday 28 September, Powys County Council has confirmed.
A pre-planning consultation period will open as Powys County Council looks to develop Abermule Business Park near Newtown. The site already has outline planning permission for the provision of six units, but the scheme has been altered to create a greater number of smaller units to better suit the needs of the local economy and assist with start-up business.
Basic infrastructure construction work at the site was completed several years ago and the construction of the North Powys Bulking Facility is currently underway.
"The proposed scheme for a number of small business units gives us the opportunity to invest further in Abermule and boost small scale economic delivery." Explains Cllr Phyl Davies, cabinet member for property.
"The site has been allocated within the development plan for a number of years and Powys County Council is keen to see the delivery of this project for the benefit of the local economy and to provide support for new enterprises.
"The site is owned by Powys County Council and the units will be available for rent with the local authority continuing to manage the site post construction."
The pre-planning consultation will close on Monday 26 October 2020 and the pre-planning consultation documents will be available to view at Abermule Community Centre during their opening hours for the duration of the four-week consultation.
The consultation documents will also be available to view online at www.powys.gov.uk/abermulebusinesspark along with details of how you can make representations regarding the scheme.
