Newtown Town Council is developing a strategy for its amenity space. This is to guide and inform its actions in developing and improving public access and engagement with the open spaces and amenity provision in the town.
The intention is to provide a framework that can be used to efficiently manage, maintain and enhance the amenity spaces available to the community of Newtown.
Responsibility for the amenity spaces is shared between the town council and Powys County Council, and is further shared within the county council by different departments. The river frontage is the responsibility of the canal and waterways trust. However this document considers the potential for the spaces from the town users experience.
