Powys County Council has considered all representations received in relation to the public consultation on the proposed Focussed Changes January 2016. Following submission of the LDP to the Welsh Government and the Planning Inspectorate in January 2016 and the subsequent Exploratory Meeting with the Inspector, the Council is proposing Further Focussed Changes. These Further Focussed Changes have been submitted to the Inspector for examination and are outlined in the “Schedule of Further Focussed Changes October2016”.

The Further Focussed Changes are subject to a formal 6 week public consultation between Monday 10th October and 5.30 pm Monday 21st November 2016.

The proposed Schedule of Further Focussed Changes and supporting Assessments/Appraisals are available for public inspection and a form for making representations is available, Monday – Friday, from the Council’s main offices below:
