In November, plans for a new flagship learning and leisure community campus took “a major step forward” after Powys council’s plans were approved by the Welsh Government, who will provide over £31m towards the project.
The new campus will include a 620 place all-through school with early years facilities along with leisure and library provision. It will also be designed to meet Passivhaus accreditation meaning it will have high energy efficiency standards, significantly reducing energy for heating and cooling, cutting the building’s CO2 emissions.
The facility will be located on the current secondary campus playing fields, with the existing school building set to be demolished.
A spokesperson for Powys County Council said the local authority are currently preparing a pre-application consultation: “The council is finalising documentation as part of the pre-application consultation, which will give people the opportunity to see the detailed plans and have their say.
“Once the pre-application consultation has been held, the council would consider any comments before submitting a planning application.”
