Powys County Council told us that they need to extend the road closure of the B4560 at Pen Rhiw Garn near Llangynidr until December this week because of problems to replacing a cattle grid which has been involved in a number of livestock deaths and injuries. The impact to Llangattock and Crickhowell that traffic will be diverted through Llangattock and the traffic lights at the Legar/Usk Bridge.
The PCC engineer in charge said: "I understand this is very short notice, however, this is the soonest we could get a contractor to undertake these works. If at all possible, please could residents be informed in the immediate area so that they can plan for additional journey times if and when travelling around the diversion route. While we shall erect road closed signs at the B4558 and C0136 junctions, residents will still be allowed to drive to the closure location and to their properties which will hopefully minimise any disruption."
Our contractor is R.F Price Ltd from Llandrindod Wells area who are well accustomed to this type of work. They will erect signage for a temporary diversion route, of which will travel along the C0136 East to Llangattock and then back to the Llangynidr via the B4558. If you have any queries, please contact me and I’ll do my best to resolve any issues."

Grants of up to £25,000 are available to Llangattock Businesses.  Follow this link to find out more.

Important Message from Powys County Council regarding the closure of the waste recycling centre at Brecon for refurbishment:

Powys County Council would like to remind residents that the Brecon Household Waste Recycling Centre in the Ffrwdgrech Industrial Estate will be closing temporarily on Thursday 16 November to undergo important safety upgrades and improve the site user experience.

Whilst the recycling centre is closed, residents wishing to recycle items not collected at the kerbside, will be able to visit one of the other four centres in the county, the closest of which are in Llandrindod Wells (open Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun) and Lower Cwmtwrch (open Mon, Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun).

Cardboard can still be taken to one of the following local community recycling sites:

Brecon Richway
Hay on Wye

While we hope most people will be able to hang on to their waste and recycling which cannot be collected through the kerbside collections, or take to an alternative site, we appreciate this isn't so easy for garden waste. For the duration of the refurbishment (starting from 20 November), garden waste can be taken to the old Brecon high school site in Penlan, off Cerrigcochion Road, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings (9am-1pm).

"We know that the closure of the Brecon Household Waste Recycling Centre for three-months will be unwelcome news, and we apologise for the inconvenience." Says Cllr Jackie Charlton, Cabinet Member for a Greener Powys. "The essential works planned for this refurbishment need to be done for the safety of all users and to ensure the site remains fit-for-use going forward.

"We are working closely with Potter Group, who run the councils recycling centres, and the contractors to ensure we have picked the quietest time of the year and to make sure we keep the length of time the site is closed to a minimum.

"With a county as large and sparse as Powys, we appreciate users of the Brecon Household Waste Recycling Centre will have to travel much further to visit another recycling centre whilst the refurbishment takes place. Thank you for your patience and understanding."

The refurbishment to the recycling centre will include new, safer hardstanding across the site, upgraded drainage, an improved one-way system with easier access and safer parking area, and a dedicated area for leaving items for re-use. Due to begin on Thursday 16 November, the work will take approximately three-months to complete.

Although many of the improvements to the site will not be noticeable to visitors, they are essential to make sure the facility complies with legal requirements, operates safely, and remains easy for visitors to access and use.
