Llanfyllin Town Council will co-opt another new councillor at its first meeting of 2020 tonight.

The council filled one position at the December meeting – Anne Williams was appointed with the chairman's vote – while Alison Alexander and Julian Sandy will be put forward for this month.

The vote in December between Mr Sandy and Councillor Williams was tied, requiring the chairman to break the deadlock.

At the meeting, held at the Public Institute from 6.45pm, there are also a number of planning matters including the building of a free-range egg production unit including silos and all associated works at Cefn Gribin, New Road, Llanfyllin.

There will also be planning decision notices discussed, including a Listed Building Consent with part retrospective application for an erection of a single storey rear extension, conversion of an attic into an ensuite bedroom, renovation work to cellar to include replacement of cellar windows at Llwyn Y Gan 9 Penybryn, Llanfyllin.

Cllr Peter Lewis will make his announcements as mayor as well as his county councillor notices, while representatives from the town council to other bodies will also discuss their work over the previous months.

Councillors will also appoint a sub-committee for a study into biodiversity as well as settling the budget for the 2019-20 financial year, among other items on the agenda.
