Work on a cultural hub in Powys has been given the go ahead to start this summer.

The project in Brecon, which obtained a lottery grant, will see the Grade II-listed Brecknock museum and art gallery building restored with a new library and tourist information base.

Powys council cabinet approved the work along with an additional £500,000 of funding.

The authority said low interest rates meant it could take the scheme forward.
