Give us your views

Powys County Council has received a £50k grant, from the Welsh Government’s Landfill Disposal Tax Community Scheme, administered by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action, to improve facilities in the lake area of Llandrindod Wells.

Proposed works will include replacing fishing platforms, installing a boardwalk and a new bird hide around the lake. The materials used for the platforms and the boardwalk will be produced from recycled plastic materials and interpretation boards will also be installed as part of this scheme.

This survey is seeking views from interested groups, visitors and users of the lake on the current facilities.  The aim is to gain a before and after picture of the perception of the lake and how that is changed by the improvement works undertaken.

We are interested in hearing from you if you use the lake to birdwatch, fish or walk in the area. 

The survey will be available until the 31st March 2019.
