A well-known Powys vet has applied to move to a new premises in Newtown.

Kerry Vale Vets based at the Moat Farm, near Newtown have applied to Powys County Council to move to a new premises on the Dyffryn Industrial Estate near Charlies and Potters.

The family-owned vets have applied to convert one of the buildings on the estate into a veterinary practice to allow the business to grow and employ more people locally.

In a planning statement put forward by agents, McCartneys they said: “Kerry Vale Vets is a practice which is owned and run by the applicant and is family, with no corporate ties.

"This allows them to invest in the practice to provide the care which they know is in the best interest of their patients.


“Kerry Vale Vets are seeking a new permanent location in Newtown which will allow them to sustainably grow and meet the ever-demanding needs of the area.

“The development will give the practice the opportunity to employ more local people, and provide a more comprehensive service, which will benefit existing, but also attract new clients.”

They add that the “application seeks to change the use of the site to a veterinary practice and to convert the existing building to meet practice needs with customer and staff parking either to the front of the unit, or on the hardstanding to the south”.

“Proposed external changes to the existing building include the removal of the vehicular entrances to the building, which will be replaced with brickwork to match the remainder of the existing building, at low level, with one-way windows above," the statement adds.

“Internally the use is subdivided into zones as required for the proposed use.”

The plans will now be considered by Powys County Council.
