Why I Love Newtown!

Our Newtown! Big Art Competition

To celebrate all that is great about our town, and to mark the publication of the “Our Town, Our Plan: The Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Place Plan”, the Town Council launched an art competition, inviting local people to send in pictures showing “What I Love About Newtown”. The pictures showed your favourite place to walk, play or meet friends or a favourite building or place to visit. Or maybe a picture of a person associated with Newtown. “Our Town, Our Plan: The Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Place Plan 2021-2036” is a 15-year plan for the future of the town. It was put together with the involvement of 48 local organisations and based on over 7,000 comments and ideas from the community. To read the plan or find out more visit: https://newtown.org.uk/consultations/placeplan.html

The winning works of art are currently on display on the outside of Oriel Davies.

Lead Councillor for the Place Plan, Cllr Richard Edwards: “Everything about the Newtown Place Plan is big! From all the evidence that was collected, to the huge amount of time and energy that the community contributed to get it done. “Our Town, Our Plan” shows us a way forward to creating a town where people want to live, work and visit.
