Powys County Council is asking the pupils, parents, staff, governors and the wider public to have their say on the proposals to close Talgarth and Bronllys community primary schools and establish a new community primary school on the current sites until a new school is built in Talgarth and opens in September 2018. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The decision to go to consultation was taken by the council’s cabinet in January with the consultation period starting on March 7 and running until April 18, 2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
