Plans have been revealed for a brand-new farm shop with the potential to expand with a butchery, deli or café on the outskirts of Newtown.

The proposed development at Broniarth Farm, situated between a railway line and the main A483 road east of Newtown towards Abermule, aims to supply people with locally grown food such as meat, fruit and vegetables.

Livestock farmer Mr Phillips plans to build the farm shop and create one fulltime job if he gets planning permission from Powys County Council because it is a "logical expansion" of his fruit and vegetable growing business which has supplied local food outlets for many years.

A statement with the planning application said: "The farm is predominantly a livestock farm, and the intention of the shop is to sell meat as well as fruit and veg grown by the applicant from the farm to people locally via the shop.

"Other farm products not produced on the farm such as dairy and poultry products will be sourced locally to support other farm businesses in the area.

"Initially, produce will be sold directly to consumers who call by at the shop but if there is a demand for it produce may be ordered online or in the shop and delivered by the applicant with a delivery charge added.

"Deliveries may be as veg and meat boxes as veg boxes are something the applicant has done previously in collaboration with other veg producers in the Newtown area.

"There is potential to expand into a butchery, deli or café in the future depending on consumer demand.

"There is no other farm shop in the area, so this is a good opportunity to supply local food to the people of Newtown and surrounding area."

The proposed single storey fully accessible building made out of saw weatherboard and corrugated steel would be accessed from the A483 on a 10-hectare site that is presently grassland. It is anticipated that there will be up to 30 extra vehicles visiting the shop every day.
