The Conservative government has given developers a carte blanche to play the property market at the expense of our citizens. And now the country’s in crisis.

Not enough homes. Properties sitting empty. Exorbitant prices. The market is closed and exclusive: a fat cats’ game. That’s not good for people and it’s not good for business.

 Thanks to the Campaign and over 3,100 signatures on the petition Powys Council Cabinet have changed their mind and the Newtown and Welshpool Potters sites will remain open but for only for 3 days / week.

The change of mind would not have happened without the large petition handed to the Council before Christmas, and the hundreds of individual questions and comments sent to them. Thank you to all those who signed. It is clear that there is a huge need for proper recycling and waste facilities here.
