TOWN and community councils across Powys are being offered help to create, expand and deliver climate and nature emergency action plans.

They have all been invited to send a representative to a free Powys town and community council environment and nature event at the Pavilion in Llandrindod Wells on Wednesday, June 14.

The conference, organised jointly by Powys County Council and Llandrindod Wells Town Council, will include speakers representing environmental organisations and question and answer sessions with panels of experts.

There will also be workshops, information stands and opportunities for networking.


“Every town and community council in Powys has been invited to send a representative to this event, which we view as a positive opportunity for them to come together at one venue where we can all share ideas that will support the development of vibrant environments,” said Councillor Jackie Charlton, Powys County Council’s cabinet member for a Greener Powys.

Cllr Steve Deeks-D’Silva, project lead of Llandrindod Wells Town Council, added: “We are partnering with Powys County Council to deliver this event because we wanted to offer other town and community councils the chance to discuss any challenges, issues or concerns they are facing while working on climate and nature emergency action plans.

“I’m sure everyone will have valuable experiences they can share, wherever they are on their journey, whether it is about the stumbling blocks encountered or brilliant ideas that have really helped to push things forward.”
