£12m of funding for five new schools in Powys
Funding of nearly £12m for five new primary schools in Powys has been approved.
Powys council has received £11.8m from the Welsh Government for the new buildings in the Gwernyfed area.
The new schools will replace current ones in Hay-on-Wye, Talgarth, Clyro, Llyswen and Llangorse.
Arwel Jones, the council's Cabinet Member for Schools, said it would "provide state-of-the-art teaching accommodation".
The total project cost of the five schools is £23.8m.
The Welsh Government funding towards this cost has been awarded as part of the 21st Century schools programme.
