Powys County Council is seeking expressions of interest for the Gwalia building in Llandrindod Wells as part of a comprehensive review of accommodation in the area.
Some back-office council services have already been relocated from the substantial Grade II listed building to other sites and the council is now seeking a partner that is interested in giving the building a new focus and long-term future.
Located near the heart of the town, the Gwalia is currently used to deliver council services including a public library and registration services with meeting rooms and offices over four floors and has the potential for several uses.
The plans are part of the council’s county-wide review of its assets to ensure buildings are fit-for-purpose for both public and office functions, and they support the council’s new models of service delivery.
New service delivery practices have already resulted in accommodation changes in Welshpool, Newtown, and Llandrindod Wells, which and has seen the council and Welsh Government utilise the same office buildings.
Cabinet Member for a Connected Powys, Cllr Jake Berriman said: “We recognise that people living and working in our communities are best placed to decide what local people want and need. We want to work with partners and other organisations to deliver an exciting new future for this building which has a significant heritage having also been a hotel in the past.
“Our local communities understand what they need to create sustainable spaces that encourage inclusivity and promote community engagement. The council wants to help bring a new life to the Gwalia and will work with interested parties who can develop a scheme to provide a sustainable future for the building.”
If you wish to contact Powys County Council to discuss this building, please contact the Strategic Property Team for an initial discussion.
