A FLOOD alleviation scheme is set to be improved in Hay-on-Wye after a grant was awarded by the Welsh Government.

Funding worth nearly £120,000 has been secured by Powys County Council to develop 10 small-scale flood alleviation schemes in the county.

This includes a scheme in Gypsy Castle Lane, Hay-on-Wye, which will involve drainage and infrastructure improvements to improve local flood protection measures.
