Castle Estate Clyro – Social Housing and relocation of children’s play area.

Groundwork investigations will be taking place this week commencing 13th May 2019 at the Clyro Castle Estate on the ground between the bungalows and main A438. This is in preparation for small scale development of quality social housing properties by Powys Council.

The plans which will be drawn up by Powys following these exploratory works will include consultation with our local community and opportunity for feedback , comments and ideas with the aim to provide much needed suitable and affordable accommodation for local people.

A new children’s play area together with a recreation/dogwalkers amenity is planned on the sloping ground  adjacent to the Clyro Castle tump. This will replace the rather tired looking present children’s play area and Powys propose that the new area  will be created before the work begins on the housing project.

A provisional plan for the new play area is shown below

Hay Library Drop in session on the future of the library Monday 4th February 10am – 12pm

Letter from HOWLS regarding the future of Hay Library:

Dear Clyro Community Council

You are probably aware that Powys County Council is proposing to cut the funding for staff at 11 of the 18 libraries in the county. This includes cutting the Librarian at Hay Library.

Although we have a number of great volunteers at Hay Library, we will not be able to guarantee the long term future of Hay Library without the professional support of the library staff who provide a vital link with the central library service and whose knowledge and advice on a range of issues including information about housing, jobs and benefits are invaluable.

Hay Library is well used and well loved and serves a much wider area than just Hay, with users coming in from your community in Clyro.

Powys is holding a drop in session at Hay Library on Monday 4th February from 10am to 12 noon to hear the views of local people and we would appreciate it if you could publicise this to your residents.

 HOWLS will also be discussing the best way forward at our next meeting on Wednesday 20th February 7pm in Hay Library and we would very much like to invite members of Clyro Community Council to attend.
