  4. 29 November 2018 04:58:54 |News,Property News,Rural Life Farmers relieved as Powys Council rejects plans to sell Farming Estate With 141 holdings and land extending to 11,300 acres, Powys County Council’s Farms Estate is the largest of its kind in Wales Powys County Council has voted not to sell swathes of its 11,300 acre Farming Estate amid budget concerns and will instead maintain it as viable asset.During a meeting on Wednesday (28 November), Powys County Council's Cabinet discussed the future of its 141 farms amid budget worries.Earlier this year, the Learning Skills and Economy (LSE) Scrutiny Committee highlighted plans, which included selling land, in order to ease financial difficulties.Their report said: "The proposals submitted to Cabinet appear to offer little choice other than the status quo."The Strategic Asset Management Plan notes a declining contribution to central capital receipts in the immediate future and this issue needs to be given serious consideration given the financial situation the authority is facing."However, in Wednesday's meeting, the council instead voted to look into estate diversification and investment. With 141 holdings and land extending to 11,300 acres, Powys County Council’s Farms Estate is the largest of its kind in Wales and the fifth largest in the UK.The majority of the Estate lies in Montgomeryshire, although there are several estates in Radnorshire with further Holdings in Brecknock.County Farms Estate holdings range in size from residential smallholdings to commercial farm units.In recent years, the Estate has sought to increase the size of its core holdings by amalgamating certain farms, with the largest Estate farm now covering a combined area of 227 acres.The County Farms Estate provides opportunities for young people wanting to get in to farming who perhaps don't have a family farm.Council Leader, Cllr Rosemarie Harris, told Powys County Times: "We are very proud of the fact that we can provide this opportunity."We may sell the odd house with an acre or so, but there are no plans to sell the estate, this document does not deal with that sort of thing." taken from the Farmers Weekly HC will never be forgiven for selling the Council farms and yet the Council are still pleading poverty

  7. They also managed to get something through to do with tax and I can't remember what
  8. An added bonus to this development it was a brownfield site. HC have said on many occasions that mistakes have been made and lessons will be learnt. Fortunately one of the driving forces behind this development is Russell Pryce and for those of you who do not remember he was a HC Planning Officer until he saw the light and he certainly learnt many lessons!
  9. Both our MP's Jesse and Bill are being remarkably quiet about Brexit. Just wondering what they think of the deal perhaps they would like to step forward and speak up to their electorate

  12. Collins Design and Build are currently working on a small development of 9 houses in Pontrilas. 2 of these houses are low cost market affordable homes Fixed sales prices - £120350 - 2 bed mid terrace and £13450 2 bed end terrace first priority to applicants with a local connection with Kentchurch and who meet affordability criteria This is the way developments should be introduced to villages not as they currently are where the infrastructure is not in place. Bit of a price difference in the starter homes compared with Lagan and Persimmon If Collins can do it why can't other developers follow suit and offer "affordable" homes
