MP concerned about potential closure of Knighton Sports Centre

Brecon and Radnorshire MP Chris Davies has written to Powys County Council to express concern over the potential closure of Knighton Sports Centre.

Powys County Council has said it must cut public spending on leisure services by £200,000 in the next financial year.

Chris Davies said:

“Knighton Sports Centre provides valued sporting facilities for a many people in Radnorshire. In recent weeks I have received a large number of correspondence from concerned constituents. This has led me to write to Powys County Council and I am in the process of arranging a meeting with the relevant councillors to discuss the ramifications of potential closures.

“I look forward to attending the meeting and discussing this situation in more detail, I will outline the concerns of the people who have contacted me regarding the closure. I hope Powys County Council have a re-think and realise they have very little public support on the matter”
