A big place, Powys. The largest local authority by geographical size in England and Wales. From Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant in the north to Ystradgynlais in the south is 110 miles, (and about a three hour drive). From Machynlleth in the west to Presteigne in the East is about 61 miles, (and about an hour and forty minutes to drive).
You might imagine that the nine members of Powys CC cabinet would come from all across this vast ‘county.’ Odd then, that five of them have SY21 or SY22 postcodes, and all live within a twenty minute drive from one another. Handy for a car share into Llandrindod, I guess.
