NATIONAL GRID CONSULTATION
Transport is a major issue for Welshpool with regard to heavy transport coming through the town to build the hub for the proposed pylon line to support the wind farms. There are two dates set and you are urged to attend to make known your views. The two dates are: Thursday 26th (in the Tourist Info Office) and Monday 30th March in the Library. The times are 2pm to 7pm, just drop in for a short while. There will be National Grid staff in attendance and most of the time Town Councillors or the Town Clerk.
You can take part in the consultation on what activities you would like to see as part of the Montgomeryshire Canal. Please click on the link to the left of this note.
BURGESSES LAND TRUST

DOG FOULING IS ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR
The Town Council a few years ago introduced dog control orders on its land. Following that the problems of dog fouling reduced. Recently it has increased and in response the Town Council is to embark on a campaign to shame such behaviour. If anyone has a photograph of a dog fouling incident in Welshpool please send a copy to the Town Clerk - the picture will be offered for publication under 'Welshpools Dog Foulers'.
