Town Council Assets and Services Consultation February 2017.
The Town Council thanks residents so much for taking the time to respond to the consultation. The results in respect of the proposals for asset transfer demonstrated strong support in the Community and they will very much assist the Town Council in their negotiations with Powys County Council. They will also be tremendously useful in support of grant funding applications in due course.
The responses about currently provided assets and services were also mostly strongly supported. A few were less so. As it happens some of these have already had their support withdrawn in the precept for 2017/18, and the Council will consider the others in precept for 2018/19.
The Council also wants to thank the 90+ responders who went to the trouble of adding individual comments to their responses. These have been passed to all Councillors for consideration.
