Brecon’s St John Ward Councillor Matthew Dorrance has taken his petition to save Brecon Youth Centre to County Hall.
The Labour and Co-operative Party Councillor has been fighting to save the Cradoc Road centre after a decision was taken by the ruling Conservative and Independent Cabinet in County Hall that would force the much-loved community facility to close by 31st March 2018.
Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“More than a thousand local residents have joined me in calling on Powys County Council to keep our Youth Centre open and I want to thank everyone who signed my petition.
“We’ve made it very clear to the Cabinet at Powys County Council that our Youth Centre is at the heart of our community and we will fight to save it.
“I urge the Cabinet to listen to my community and to act on our concerns.”
