The sessions aim to address any issues that may be hindering the growth and development of local businesses. A session is being held in Newtown at Hafan yr Afon on Wednesday, December 13th between 9am and 3pm.

Other sessions will take place in various Powys towns over the coming months, including Llandrindod Wells, Welshpool, Brecon, Ystradgynlais, and Hay-on-Wye.

During these sessions, experts from various organizations will be in attendance to provide valuable advice and support.

Representatives from Business Wales, Development Bank of Wales, Cwmpas Co-op, Mid Wales Regional Skills Partnership, Federation of Small Businesses, Severn Wye Energy Agency, and Powys County Council's regeneration, property, planning, trading standards, and environmental health teams will be available. While the attending organizations may vary from venue to venue, Business Wales and the council's regeneration team will be present at all sessions.

If attendees wish to verify the availability of a specific organization at a particular session, they can contact the regeneration team via email at [email protected].

Cllr David Selby, Powys County Council's Cabinet Member for a More Prosperous Powys said:

"We want to help the county's businesses to unlock their full potential as part of our plans to create a stronger, fairer and greener Powys"

"So, I would appeal to anyone running a business of any size in Powys, or who is thinking about relocating to the area, to drop in and speak to us at one of these six events.

"No appointment is necessary."

The sessions have been made possible through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, a component of the UK Government's Levelling Up program. The sessions are open to all businesses and aim to support local economic growth and prosperity.
